How much money would it take for you to agree to go to prison for this time? I wouldn't do it for any amount of money.
I don't know. I have no idea how to even comprehend such a choice.
But if I had a choice between "being executed" verses "15 years in prison followed by 15 million dollars tax free" (a likely court judgement if my wrongful conviction was proven to be due to state wrongdoing), I'd choose the latter.
If I had a choice between "being executed" verses "15 years in prison followed by 1.2 million dollars tax free, free health care and psychological treatment for life, and an additional $80,000 a year for the rest of my life" (what Texas would pay to an exoneree who had spent 15 years in prison), I'd still choose the latter.
Side note: It is interesting how a conservative state like Texas does so much better in caring for their exonerees than many left-leaning states do.
