In 1980, a young man named Marvin Grant was gunned down in Flatbush Brooklyn. Clarence Lewis, a 15-year-old with a penchant for lying, told the police he “saw what happened” and was pressured to identify a suspect. This set into motion a series of events that led to the arrest of Colin Warner, an innocent teenager who lived in nearby Crown Heights. The police investigation was marred by misconduct and coercion of witnesses, culminating in a bizarre trial in which an innocent man was tried alongside the actual perpetrator. Both men were found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison.
