You Be the Judge

Yi!

A man was convicted of committing sex crimes and sent to prison. The guy's wife stuck by him, taking care of the family, and sending his money for things he needed behind bars. Then, after a decade in prison, they ended up getting a divorce. Years later, DNA evidence proved that the man was in fact innocent and he was exonerated. For the screw up, the state gave him millions of dollars. That's when his ex-wife came calling. She is suing for a piece of that money for all the time effort and strain it took losing her breadwinner to the prison system. Courts originally awarded her $150,000 but the man is appealing the decision in a case that will probably make its way to the Texas Supreme Court and be the first of its kind in history.

What do you think? Does she deserve any money?
