The West Memphis Three are free!

West Memphis Three

The 18-year ordeal of the so-called West Memphis Three ended today in an Arkansas courtroom after a judge accepted a plea deal to set them free.

The three men will be allowed to maintain their innocence while acknowledging that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict them, according to the Associated Press.

It is a legal maneuver that would allow the men to leave prison for the first time in more than a dozen years. They have always maintained their innocence.

As far as Prosecutor Scott Ellington is concerned, he said, “the case is closed,” despite his firm belief that the West Memphis Three are guilty.

“I have no reason to believe that there was anyone else involved in the homicide of those three children,” other than those three defendants, he said.
