Ricky Jackson was wrongfully imprisoned from ages 18 to 57 because of a child’s lie, the longest recorded wrongful incarceration in the US.

“Wow, I didn't know that,” Jackson, 57, told the reporter. “Wow wow wow, that's fantastic, man. I don't even know what to say, this is going to mean so much.”

The Ohio state auditor's office calculated the daily rate of compensation to be $142.20, multiplied by the 14,178 days Jackson was wrongfully held in state prisons.

On top of this Jackson is to receive a not-yet determined amount to cover lost wages, attorney's fees, and other expenses incurred during his prison sentence. His lawyer, Michele Berry, said the most likely career path he could have taken were he not incarcerated will be “determined by an expert.”
