New York City and State have paid $110 million in settlements for wrongful convictions tied to ex-detective Louis N. Scarcella's alleged framing of individuals for murder.

Former NYPD detective Louis Scarcella has been accused of fabricating evidence which led to the wrongful convictions of over a dozen individuals, resulting in settlements totaling $110 million from New York City and State after the exoneration of these individuals. These settlements reflect the heavy financial and human cost of misconduct within the justice system, with the forecast of additional payouts as more cases are reviewed and claims are filed.
