Lake Mills man wants state to pay for his extra prison time

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Lake Mills man who was kept in prison for almost 14 months after his sentence ended wants the state to cough up $67,000 for the extra time.

52-year-old Robin Gavinski spent an extra 417 days behind bars, after state corrections' workers made him serve back-to-back sentences, instead of both at the same time as a judge prescribed.

Gavinski had pleaded no contest to fleeing police officers in a stolen car ten years ago. He was also given probation time for previous convictions.

Gavinski wants the State Claims Board to cover his legal fees and potentially lost income. A state lawyer said Gavinski is asking taxpayers for too much -- and the state is immune from what it calls a rare type of claim.
