Hannah Overton, the mother found guilty in 2007 of murdering a four-year-old foster child before her conviction was overturned, will be getting restitution for her time in prison.
According to ABC News, Overton will receive a check for more than $573,000.
Overton spent more than seven years in prison before her conviction was overturned. She was officially declared innocent in May of 2017. That declaration made her eligible for State funds and protects her from being charged again.
Overton now lives in East Texas and is currently pregnant with her sixth child.
