September 7, 1988 was supposed to be Marty Tankleff's first day of his senior year in high school. It became the worst day of his life. He awoke to find his parents murdered in their Long Island home. Investigating the murders, the police became suspicious of Tankleff's story and took him in for questioning.
AMERICAN JUSTICE® reveals how Tankleff gave a partial confession before his lawyer put a stop to the interrogation. Despite recanting his story, he was convicted at trial two years later. Through interviews with Tankleff and his attorneys, CONFESSION IN QUESTION details his legal odyssey, and we’ll meet the former detective who discovered new evidence which may finally free the prisoner from his Sing Sing cell.
