Man to be compensated $475K after wrongful conviction, 2 years in prison

After wrongfully being convicted of criminal sexual conduct involving a minor and spending two years in a Stillwater prison, Roger Olsen, 50, will be compensated $475,000 by the state, his attorney said Tuesday.

While in prison, Olsen was "subjected to assaults and abuse by inmates who targeted him not only because of his quiet and peaceful demeanor, but because he had been falsely labeled as a child rapist," his attorney Steve Meshbesher said.

Olsen, of La Crescent, was released from prison in 2008 when investigators found evidence that the accuser fabricated the story. According to the Star Tribune, the accuser was his former stepdaughter.

"As the county attorney's office that originally prosecuted Mr. Olsen has acknowledged, evidence came to light after Mr. Olsen's conviction that affirmatively proves he is an innocent man," Meshbesher said.

The Minnesota Office of Management and Budget will be paying Olsen for injuries and damages he sustained during the false imprisonment between 2006 and 2008. The settlement will be presented to the legislature this session for final approval; Meshbesher said they're confident it will be approved without delay.

"This settlement vindicates Mr. Olsen as an innocent man, and while it cannot give him back the time he lost, or undo the suffering he endured, it represents the beginning of a new chapter in Mr. Olsen's life," Meshbesher said.
