Which do you think that Cornealious "Mike" Anderson should receive now?
Short summary from article:
Anderson was sentenced to 13 years in prison in 2000 for helping rob a Burger King employee a year earlier, when he was 22 years old. He was granted bail pending appeal and when his appeals were exhausted waited for a date to surrender, which never came.
He got married, bought a house, fathered four children and became a taxpaying, churchgoing small-business man.
The state realized its error in July 2013, when prison officials slated to release Anderson found he never served his sentence. He was arrested and taken to prison to begin the stretch, and he?s arguing that amounts to cruel and unusual punishment.
