Joe D’Ambrosio, a former death row inmate for twenty-one years, filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the state for wrongful imprisonment.
Mr. D’Ambrosio wants compensation for being wrongly imprisoned by the state, plus compensation for lost wages and attorneys fees.
The suit names as defendants the State of Ohio and Cuyahoga County Prosecutor William D. Mason, who acted on behalf of the state.
The fifty-year-old North Royalton resident would be eligible for more than $1 million if Cuyahoga County Judge Michael J. Russo determined that Mr. D’Ambrosio qualifies for compensation.
