West Memphis 3 stars make first appearance after being released from prison

HollywoodNews.com: The celebrated West Memphis Three– Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, Jesse Misskelley, Jr. — made their first appearance together today since being released from prison in August after 17 years. The trio arrived at the end of HBO’s morning press screening of Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky‘s extraordinary “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory.”

The film now contains an Epilogue chronicling their unusual arrangement to get out of an Arkansas prison even though they were forced –wrongly–to admit their guilt while maintaining their innocence. It’s a bizarre situation, leaving them technically cited for life as convicted murderers even though they are innocent.

What’s more, the new film firmly places blame for the terrible 1993 murders of three 8 year old boys at the feet of one of their stepfathers, Terry Hobbs. Even more incredibly, virtually all of the family members of the children have turned against Hobbs and support Echols, Baldwin, and Misskelley–most prominently the father of one of the boys, John Mark Byers. Disturbingly the judge who let this miscarriage of justice go on for so long–David Burnett–is now off the bench and loose in the Arkansas political system as a state senator. (This story does nothing to help preconceived notions about the South, that’s for sure.)
