NEW EXONERATION: Quentin Carter


In 1992, a Michigan 10-year-old was raped by her mother’s boyfriend. The boyfriend then beat her with a cord until she agreed to accuse Quentin Carter of the rape. Carter was convicted based on her testimony. It wasn’t until the boyfriend was prosecuted for an unrelated murder that the investigators went back and re-interviewed the girl (who had gone back to the prosecution twice already to tell them Carter wasn’t the rapist), and her mother, both of whom confirmed that the boyfriend was the rapist. After almost 17 years, Mr. Carter was released LAST WEEK. Read the rest of his story here: http://bit.ly/1g8bzlg
