No, Walter Ogrod did not receive any kind of compensation as per Daily Mail.
The Pennsylvania resident Ogrod has no other savings than from unemployment and disability payments. As Pennsylvania doesn’t compensate wrongfully convicted victims, he was not compensated anything by the state.

Firstly, Walter did not commit any crime, but in return, he was falsely accused of murdering a 4-year-old girl. And for that, he had to spend almost 30 years of his precious time in prison and for a crime, he didn’t even do.
