(1) There is directed to be expended from the appropriation under section 20.505 (4) (d) of the statutes, as affected by the acts of 2011 and 2013, $90,000 in payment of a claim against the state made by Robert Lee Stinson, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to compensate the claimant for wrongful imprisonment during the period from 1985 to 2009 as a result of his conviction on a charge of first-degree intentional homicide of which he was innocent. Acceptance of this payment, together with all other compensation received by the claimant from the claims board, releases this state and its state officers, employees, and agents from any further liability in connection with the arrest, conviction, and imprisonment of the claimant during the above period.
