A settlement has been reached between the state of Kansas and a man who spent 14 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit. The Attorney General's office announced the settlement with Floyd Bledsoe today.
Bledsoe was convicted in Jefferson County and imprisoned for murder, kidnapping, and indecent liberties in 2000. His conviction was vacated and charges against him dismissed in 2015. A court determined that Bledsoe did not commit the crime or crimes for which he was convicted, nor was he an accessory or accomplice to that crime or crimes.
