Season 20, Episode 8 An Ordinary Crime

First Aired: January 10, 2002

Filmmaker Ofra Bikel examines how a 1997 North Carolina robbery and shooting turned into an extraordinary case because one of the perpetrators knew only the first name of another. The result, Bikel contends, is that Terence Garner is serving 32 to 43 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, while Terrance Deloach wasn't prosecuted---even though he confessed at one point. The shooting victim swears that Garner did it, but most of the evidence Bikel points to contradicts her.
