After serving 18 years in prison, Jason Baldwin, Damien Echols and Jessie Misskelley Jr. are now free men, and although they continue to assert their innocence in the brutal 1993 slaying of three young boys, they had to plead guilty to the court in a rare agreement known as an Alford plea.
There are still plenty of unanswered questions about the case, and this panel discussion will seek to address some of them. On the panel will be Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington, Arkansas Times contributing editor and "Devil's Knot" author Mara Leveritt, Arkansas Take Action leader Capi Peck and attorneys for Baldwin, Echols and Misskelley.
