Grove City Man Again Appeals To Sue For Wrongful Imprisonment

WCBE files

A man who spent years on death row for a double murder he didn't commit is asking the Ohio Supreme Court to rule for a second time he may continue to sue the state for wrongful imprisonment. The high court last year ruled  a law updating Ohio's definition of a wrongfully imprisoned individual could be applied retroactively in the case of 82-year-old Dale Johnston of Grove City. But a Franklin County appeals court later concluded Johnston can't sue, based on a ruling in a different case. Johnston was convicted of killing his stepdaughter and her fiance in 1982. The real killer confessed in 2008.
