McCann to receive compensation for wrongful imprisonment

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced earlier this year that three men would receive compensation through the Michigan Wrongfully Imprisoned Compensation Act, totaling $2.3 million.

One is Raymond McCann, a former Constantine reserve police officer who was charged with perjury in connection with the 2007 murder of Jodi Parrack.

The compensation act, signed in 2016, allows those who are wrongfully convicted of crimes to receive up to $50,000 for each year spent in prison.

McCann is set to receive $40,000. His innocence was confirmed by new surveillance footage.

McCann spent 20 months behind bars after pleading no contest to perjury. He was accused of making false statements about his whereabouts years earlier, in 2007, when Parrack was killed in Constantine.
