Johnson gets millions for wrongful conviction
The province has awarded $2.5 million in compensation to a Shelburne man who was wrongfully convicted of murdering his wife in 1993.
Clayton Johnson spent five years behind bars before he was acquitted in 2002.
He launched a lawsuit against the provincial government to claim damages for wrongful arrest and imprisonment.
The compensation covers Johnson's legal fees and other expenses.
