Video of the Day-Marty Tankleff Exclusive

Posted: November 8, 2008 in Videos
Marty Tankleff was 19 when he was sentenced to prison for his parents’ murder. Now 36, he is a free man thanks to his family’s efforts to exonerate him. Erin Moriarty reports.
Frank recently alerted me to this case which appeared on Oprah a couple of weeks ago. I have a recording of the episode on my DVR and it’s quite an interesting case based mostly on the fact that Tankleff’s case was overturned by the Appellate Court simply due to a re-examination of the case.
Proves to me all things are possible. In Marty’s case, his family played a major role with their persistent efforts to exonerate him. It’s highly doubtful Marty would be a free man today without his family’s efforts.
