I suppose so but 27 years is a lot of life to waste no matter how much money you have

some much of his life wasted because he confessed to something he didn't do.

He was apparently not well at the time and was diagnosed as being a pathological liar,

It's a tragic story. The man has literally had his life torn away from him. Just proves why the death penalty is right not to be reintroduced.

the article said he confessed. his defence changed his plee stating he was a pathological liar.

another great moment for justice!

He had mental health issues related to his confessions. He plead not guilty in the trial.

Hope those facts help your judgment on the matter.

I stand by my comments.
He "confessed" 3 times.
27 years nick just saved him from an institute and he was in nick to start with.
Was he in there wrongly too?
#17
Was watching the news the other day and he said how much he had longed to go for a walk in the park, when the reporter asked him how long it had been since he had done so (she was expecting 27 years) he was like "not since 1974". Made me chuckle a bit.

So you think that it was okay for an innocent man to be locked up for a crime he didn't commit?
banned#19
maybe when hes released he will be charged with wasting police time, and now he wants paying too

What was he in for in the 1st place?
Just how "innocent" is he?

If you punch someone in the gob, expect one back....If you tell people you commited a crime, expect to do some time.

Quick show of hands:

1) Hands up who here's ever encountered a pathelogical liar
2) Hands up who's ever encountered a pathelogical liar whose lies are meant to be to the detriment of themselves


'Cos, I've come across a few hardcore liars in my time. J lied pretty much constantly to cover for how dull his real life was ("Yeah, and then the second time they burned my house down..."), M lied pretty much constantly for much the same reasons ("Yeah, I was offered this £18k job, but I turned it down because the computer they had wasn't good enough"), T lied pretty much constantly for, ditto, S lied for, and I don't want to be repeating myself here.

There's other pathelogical liars I've encountered, but it seems pointless to list them all. Point is, of all of them, I can't think of a single one who's been in a reasonably good position and who's lied to bring themselves down. Y'know. Like, by doing something silly, like telling a series of police officers on multiple occasions that they raped and killed someone. Whether he did it or not, his jailtime is entirely his own fault, so bllox to him.

His lawyer Julian Young said the cab hit Mr Hodgson as it tried to avoid a police car.


They just won't leave him alone will they . . . . . .

Nothing. THAT'S THE POINT. He had mental issues and was a patholigical liar. They don't comprehend the world in the same way as a person with fully intact mental abilities.

So you don't think society has a duty to protect those who can't protect themselves and actually cause harm to themselves? Don't we at least have a duty to say sorry and compensate him?

Let's not forget, he plead not guilty during his trial. A man who pleads not guilty and is found guilty, only to have the verdict overturned is due compensation for having his life taken away from him.

And if you plead not guilty, but then found guilty of a crime you didn't commit...tough?

Because he lied the police stopped looking for the real rapist/murderer believing they had caught him, how many more lives has the real guy ruined, I doubt he stopped at one rape/murder.

The family of the dead girl thought the person responsible for their daughter's death was caught and justice was served, they are the ones I feel sorry for.

Yes it was a miscarriage of justice but one only bought about by Sean Hodgson's own doing initially.

One would have to question whether he has the faculties to actually realise this point. It's a sad case all round, but ultimately a guy was sentenced to what was ultimately a life sentence for something he wasn't guilty of.

Even if you believe he was guilty of intentionally misleading the police, he's more than served his time and deserves compensation.

Fortunately, we're not a barbaric country with the death sentence so the one positive is that he's around to collect it.

i pretty much agree with this.

the man will learn to cope with life.. just as we all have to.

Anyone with mental health issues needs and deserves help and support though. It's just a shame for this man AND the poor girls family that the jury didn't recognise this point as with a man in jail convicted of the murder I doubt the police kept looking for the real murderer, even if they knew this man was actually innocent.

You'd have to have a history of being a pathological liar, but apart from being mentally ill it'd be plain sailing.
