Tribute to Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter

Rubin "Hurricane" Carter (born May 6, 1937) was a professional middleweight boxer from 1961 to 1966 and a member of the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame. In 1966, Carter was arrested for multiple homicides in the Lafayette Bar and Grill in Paterson, New Jersey. He and another man, John Artis, were tried twice and convicted for the murders, but the convictions were overturned on appeal in 1985 and the prosecution chose not to try the case for a third time. From 1993 to 2005 Carter served as executive director of the Association of the Wrongly Convicted.
