The Trials of Darryl Hunt

PG-13| 1 hr. 46 min.

Plot Summary
This documentary details the conviction and eventual exoneration of Darryl Hunt. Hunt, an African-American, was convicted in 1984 of the rape and murder of Deborah Sykes, a white newspaper editor in North Carolina. Maintaining his innocence throughout, Hunt is convicted due in large part to false testimony by a witness who was later found to have ties to the Ku Klux Klan. Even though DNA evidence in 1994 proved his innocence, the North Carolina legal system didn't release Hunt until 2004.
