TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Wrongly convicted of rape and robbery,

Alan Crotzer already has received $1.25 million in compensation, but

now he wants a pardon.

Gov. Charlie Crist and the Florida Cabinet will consider his request

Tuesday.

Crotzer spent 24 years in prison before being released in 2006

when DNA evidence proved he was innocent of abducting and raping

two women from a Tampa home during a robbery.

He is one of nine Florida convicts proven innocent by DNA.

Eight have been freed.

One died just before he was exonerated.
