Summary "About the wrongful prosecution and conviction of Martin Tankleff for the 1988 murder of his parents, when he was 17-years-old. Although the police had reason to believe from the beginning of their investigation that his father's business partner was involved in the crime, they ignored him and exclusively focused on Martin. Martin was convicted of the murders in 1988 and sentenced to 50 years in prison. Based on new evidence Martin's conviction was overturned and a new trial ordered in December 2007 and several weeks later Martin was released on bail after 17 years of imprisonment. On June 30, 2008 New York's Attorney General announced that the murder charges were being dismissed against Martin. "A Criminal Injustice" is the inside story of the extent to which the police and prosecutors ignored compelling evidence of who the actual murderers are and instead claimed that Martin acted alone."
