Richard Phillips freed after 45 yrs in prison for crime he did not commitA Michigan man who spent 45 years in prison before he was exonerated of murder will receive $1.5 million from the state, the attorney general's office said Friday.

Richard Phillips, 73, was exonerated in 2018, becoming the longest-serving U.S. inmate to be cleared. He's been selling his prison paintings to raise money while waiting to learn whether he would be compensated under a Michigan law that pays the wrongly convicted.

"We have an obligation to provide compassionate compensation to these men for the harm they suffered," Attorney General Dana Nessel said in a statement.
