In Session Anchor
Marty Tankleff, imprisoned for nearly two decades for the murders of his mother and father — crimes he did not commit — will file a lawsuit today against Suffolk County, Long Island for his wrongful imprisonment.
Marty spent what should have been the best years of his life behind bars, from age 17, until his release at age 36. For 6,338 days, from the day he was arrested to the day he was freed, at the end of 2007, Marty maintained his innocence and fought to prove his innocence. No doubt, Marty Tankelff is owed great compensation for those lost years, especially because it is more than likely that Marty’s wrongful conviction was due not to negligence, but to malfeasance.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
