I'm not FKL, but I've been following innocence stuff for several years. Some states give money outright; others require a special act of the state legislature.

In the states that do give money, some give a flat amount, no matter how long you were stuck in there. Texas gives you 80k/year. California gives you $140/day of wrongful incarceration. DC actually includes an amount for time spent on parole/probation/SO status. Maryland only pays "actual damages." Overview at the Innocence Project.
