    Now they said they did it to be let out of jail. I guess that was the agreement with the courts.

    From what I understand, new DNA evidence that was found at the crime scene does not match any of the WM3. Not sure if DNA testing was around in 1993. I was 11 in 93, so not sure how they were convicted, but I think one of them who is mentally retarded confessed to the crime and implicated the other 2. Since then, HBO has done a documentary on them called Paradise Lost, which provided evidence they didnt commit the crime. Also Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam and Natalie Maines of Dixie Chicks have used their celebrity status to bring media attention to the 3. They were offered a plea deal this week in exchange for their release. The plea deal is the same as a guilty verdict so the 3 cant sue the state. The DA offeerd the plea deal in light of the new DNA evidence, which from what i understand would have had them accquited.
