County may have to sell public buildings to pay victims of a botched murder trial

The problems in Gage County, Nebraska, stem from the horrific rape and killing of 68-year-old Helen Wilson in 1985 and the conviction months later of three men and three women who spent decades in prison before DNA evidence exonerated them. Those wrongly convicted filed a federal lawsuit, and a federal jury awarded them $28.1 million, plus additional money for attorney fees. The small county can’t possibly pay the judgment.
