Effect of New Evidence
New evidence, or discovery of an error, that casts substantial doubt
on the possible accuracy of the most recent acquit/convict decision in
a case, causes a new trial in the same court which issued that
decision, which can lead to reaffirmation or deprecation of the prior
acquit/convict decision, and imposition or dissolution of a sentence,
and can be appealed as can any court decision. If a sentence is
dissolved, the falsely sentenced party is appropriately compensated,
in the form of public exoneration, refund of all payments paid, and
nullification of all liabilities assumed including those that arose
from the cost of imprisonment. Furthermore, time and/or labor already
complete is subtracted from any subsequent sentence on a credit basis,
until the credited time and/or labor is exhausted. Time is to be
converted into labor, or labor into time, at the rate of 6 hours of
labor for one day's incarceration, as directed by the convicted party.
