You wait ages for a burger… and then as many as you want come along.
A fast food restaurant has given free burgers for a year to the man who paid them a visit following his release from prison 36 years after being convicted of a crime he didn’t commit.
Wrongfully-convicted Michael Hanline sunk his teeth into a burger at a branch of Carl’s Jr. after the California Innocence Project saw him released from jail in footage that has since gone viral.
And Carl’s Jr. have now given Mr. Hanline a ‘free burgers for a year’ pass, meaning he can tuck in whenever he wants.
‘Michael, thank you for choosing Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s,’ they wrote in a tweet.
‘Hope you enjoyed it. Here’s a few more.’
The California Innocence Project replied to the tweet by saying that ‘Mike was thrilled to hear about the free burgers!’
