Hearing today in Long Island case

An appellate court is hearing arguments today in the case of Marty Tankleff, who has maintained his innocence since he was arrested in 1988 for allegedly killing his parents. He was convicted in 1990 based partly on an admission of guilt that he says was coerced.

The Innocence Project has consulted with Tankleff’s attorneys and filed a brief in the case asserting that it has some of the hallmarks of a false confession and a wrongful conviction.
