NOW: Man unjustly prisoned in Marquette Park Four case speaks to class at Notre Dame

NOTRE DAME, Ind.- Charles Johnson, one of the four men unjustly imprisoned in 1995, spoke to a class at Notre Dame today.

The Marquette Park Four was the name given to four black men who each spent 20 years in prison for crimes they did not commit.

The four men were teenagers when they were arrested for a double murder and robbery despite no evidence tying them to the crime.

The men were finally exonerated in 2017 after fingerprint evidence proved their innocence.
