Clemente Aguirre, the 28th exonerated Florida Death Row survivor, spent 14 years behind bars, including more than a decade on Florida’s Death Row, for a crime he did not commit. House Bill 6523 “Relief of Clemente Aguirre-Jarquin“ by Rep. Anna Eskamani and Senate Bill 24 by Sen. Victor Torres, would provide some compensation to him for his ordeal.
These bills need to pass the FL House Civil Justice Subcommittee and Senate Judiciary Committee to move ahead. Please contact the Chairs of these committees and ask them to support the relief bill for Clemente Aguirre-Jarquin.
These Chairs and their committees recently moved through good bills in rightful support of Clifford Williams’ compensation and could extend similar support for Clemente’s. Williams spent 43 years in prison and FL Death Row for a crime he did not commit. Please be sure to also thank them for supporting the relief bill for Clifford Williams.
