Join The League of Women Voters and New Yorkers Against the Death Penalty for a special screening on of the award-winning film The Exonerated, featuring Susan Sarandon, Danny Glover, Aidan Quinn, Brian Dennehy and Delroy Lindoy, followed by a talk with Marty Tankleff, whose case has brought national attention. A reception with wine and cheese will follow. Donations ($12) at door highly encouraged.

Marty Tankleff had just turned 17 when he was arrested for killing his parents, Seymour and Arlene Tankleff, in their home on Long Island, NY. Based on a dubious, unsigned “confession” extracted from him following hours of interrogation by a detective with a questionable background, Marty was convicted and sentenced to 50 years to life. After 17 years in prison, Marty’s conviction was vacated by the New York State Appellate Division, Second Department, in December of 2007. On July 22, 2008, a judge signed off on a motion by Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to dismiss all charges against Marty.
