Gov. Jay Inslee, seated left, turns to shake hands with Alan Northrop, a former Clark County resident, after Inslee signed into law a measure that would allow people who have been wrongfully convicted to seek state compensation for the years they were imprisoned on Wednesday in Olympia. Northrop was convicted of rape and served 17 years in prison before he was exonerated by DNA evidence.
