Rick Walker was convicted and sentenced to 26 years in prison for a murder he did not commit. Linked to the crime by false testimony and questionable legal tactics, Walker spent 12 years in some of California's most dangerous prisons before he was found factually innocent of the crime. Once exonerated, he faced yet another barrier to justice, the California State Legislature. Entitled to receive one hundred dollars for each day falsely imprisoned, Walker became a pawn in the annual partisan battle over the California budget. Ultimately, $100 a Day is about hope – hope that in one man’s quest for justice lays the inspiration for our elected officials to govern with the true strength of their convictions.
