Wrongfully imprisoned woman gets settlement
WESTERN NEW YORK -- A Western New York woman will receive a large settlement after being wrongfully imprisoned for 13 years for her daughters death.
Lynn Dejac Peters will receive $2.7 million from the state for the physical and emotional trauma she says she endured while in prison.
Her attorneys say they're now focusing on a federal lawsuit between Erie County and the City of Buffalo.
During a press conference this morning, DeJac's attorneys claimed there was a massive cover-up that led to the wrongful conviction.
Charges against Dejac Peters were reversed back in 2007, after D-N-A evidence proved she did not kill her daughter.
