Was Rubin Carter really innocent?
Read the FACTS. You make the call.
"This book is dedicated to the families of murder victims James Oliver, Fred Nauyaks and Hazel Tanis, and to the family of Willie Marins, who miraculously survived the assassins' bullets and died years later of other causes.”
About the book
This story is told by NJ Lead Detective Vincent J. DeSimone, Jr., the man who lived with the case for more than ten years. This is more than the story of a murder case, however; this is a story of how public relations people, celebrities, heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, and the media tried to sway public opinion on behalf of two convicted killers. Newspapers also were clamoring for immediate pardon of the defendants. So convincing was this campaign that a governor almost pardoned Rubin Carter and John Artis without a further trial.
