    Man seeks restitution for his time in prison on false rape charges

    From the Columbia Tribune: Man seeks restitution for his time in prison on false rape charges

    SPRINGFIELD (AP) - A Seymour man is demanding restitution from the state after being jailed for more than 21 months for a rape he didnít commit.

    Armand Villasana, then living in Springfield, was convicted in 1999 of kidnapping Judith Ann Lummis from a Sonic Drive-in, then raping and sodomizing her at knifepoint.

    Seven months later, he was exonerated when his defense attorneys presented evidence showing DNA collected from the womanís rape kit didnít match Villasana.

    Lummis acknowledged in 2007 that she made up the rape story to cover up an extramarital affair.

    Greg Aleshire, an attorney for Villasana, filed a petition Friday in Greene County Circuit Court seeking reimbursement for the time his client spent in prison after his conviction.

    "We were looking at several different angles for Mr. Villasana, and this one appeared to be the most viable," Aleshire said.

    State law allows anyone convicted but later found innocent by DNA testing to receive $50 for every day he or she is behind bars post-conviction.

    The petition filed by Aleshire requests $11,250 for the 225 days between Villasanaís conviction on Nov. 10, 1999, and his June 21, 2000, release.

    Aleshire said Villasana needs the money to pay back family members who lent him money for his defense attorneys. "Heís not getting ahead on this - it will just allow him to pay back money that he owes," Aleshire said. "The other problem for Armand, too, is he spent a year and a half in jail before his conviction, and he gets nothing for that."

    By seeking restitution, Villasana also waives his ability to sue the state or other government agency for his incarceration.

    Villasanaís defense attorneys won his release with evidence that the Missouri Highway Patrolís crime lab failed to report before his trial. In a report sent to prosecutors, lab workers said they found no semen to test in the womanís rape kit but didnít include notes mentioning other possible biological materials in the evidence.

    The attorneys paid for additional testing, which found a DNA profile that didnít match Villasana, Lummis or her husband. Five years later, it was matched to another man, leading Lummis to confess the cover-up.

    Prosecutors couldnít charge Lummis with perjury because the statute of limitations had passed but she spent seven months in prison for probation violations.

    Aleshire called Lummis "the real culprit in this" and said Villasana had considered suing her for his time behind bars.

    They didnīt even try. The evidence was there they now they could check but they didnīt. As we can clearly see here itīs all about having someone to jail, a scapegoat, instead of really clearing the case. Truly disturbing if you think about it.
    The men's and fathers' movement needs to make sure it never sees females as the enemy,
    but only misandry--whether from females or from males.
    If not, we'll become like the bigoted feminists that this movement was formed to oppose.

    "State law allows anyone convicted but later found innocent by DNA testing to receive $50 for every day he or she is behind bars post-conviction."


    this dude will most likely have to fight the "state" for this pittance and insult added to the injury of his incarceration - but he is insolvent now with a criminal conviction who would want to employ him !

    the feminit Juggernaut once having shat on the victim is not much interested in any form of restitution - what if other falsely accused men wanted restitution too
