It began with a brutal and senseless murder. Looking for a suspect, the police grabbed the first convenient person they spotted: a 15-year-old kid named Brent Butler. The cops figured they had it solved in record time. In just hours they had an eyewitness and the killer. Case closed. The police, prosecutors, courts, prisons and the press were all patting themselves on the back before an all-too pliant and applauding public.
Except for one thing: They all got wrong. As is proving more and more common-place in our nation, the justice system screwed up. But that was just the beginning. For Brent, his family and the rest of us, over the next year nothing -- nothing at all -- would ever be the same again.
First the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary, "Murder On A Sunday Morning," now Brent Butler speaks out in his own words. In shocking and graphic detail Brent describes his horrific ordeal from accusation to imprisonment and from trial to final exoneration. And the truth is more brutal than ever: The innocent are America's latest victims.
