Description

Claims; Gary Linwood Bush. Provides relief in the amount of $520,163 to Gary Linwood Bush, who was wrongfully convicted of two bank robberies in 2007. In May 2018, after Mr. Bush served 11 years in prison, the Court of Appeals issued writs of actual innocence to Mr. Bush for both robberies after another person confessed and pled guilty to the robberies. The bill also allows Mr. Bush to receive career and technical training within the Virginia Community College System free of tuition charges, up to a maximum of $10,000. Read the Bill »
