Boston has agreed to pay $3.25 million to Ulysses Rodriguez Charles, who spent 18 years in prison after he was convicted of raping three women during a home invasion. Charles was freed, though, after DNA tests couldn't tie him to the crime scene. (Prosecutors still contend that he merely failed to ejaculate, which is why there was no trace of him in the apartment. Two of the victims still believe Charles raped them.)
Charles sued, saying the authorities withheld evidence that could have cleared him. Though he's getting the $3.25 million, the federal government is working to deport him to Trinidad. He apparently got into other trouble, such as trafficking heroin in prison.
