Decision
Claimant, Andre Williams, a pro se inmate, alleges that he was wrongfully confined for a period of thirty-nine days, while housed at the Elmira Correctional Facility, from April 3, 1997 until May 13, 1997. The trial of this matter was held on February 17, 2004 at the Elmira Correctional Facility.


Claimant, to the court's satisfaction, placed in evidence the proof that he was wrongfully confined for a period of up to thirty-five days.


The State while offering some proof did not sufficiently refute the allegations of the claimant.


Consequently, at the conclusion of this trial a decision was rendered on the record on behalf of claimant awarding claimant $10.00 per day for the thirty-five days of his wrongful confinement.


After due deliberation having been had, it is hereby


ORDERED that the court finds for the claimant in the total amount of $350.00.


The clerk of the court is directed to enter such judgment accordingly.
