What's 14 years of a man's life worth? About $1.25 million, according to a Manhattan federal judge. That's how much David Lemus will receive after being locked up for more than a decade for a crime he didn't commit. Lemus and Olmedo Hidalgo were found guilty of a 1990 shooting outside East 14th Street's Palladium nightclub (now an NYU dormitory), but their convictions were overturned in 2005 when evidence linked two other men to the death of bouncer Marcus Peterson. Lemus — who filed a $50 million lawsuit against police and prosecutors — claims that investigators knew as early as 1994 that two other men committed the crime, the Daily News reports. His attorney, Steven Schiesel, told the Post: "No amount of money can fairly compensate Mr. Lemus for spending his youth being shuffled from prison to prison."
