Support UsOn Friday, the Texas Supreme Court ruled unanimously that Alfred Dewayne Brown is entitled to monetary compensation from the Texas Comptroller’s Office due to his near decade on death row for a crime investigators later found he did not commit. Back in 2005, Brown was convicted of murdering Houston Police Officer Charles Clark and sentenced to death.
