Is Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter in jail now?

Rubin Carter's attorneys filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus in federal court, a rarely successful collateral attack on the judgment of a state court requesting federal review of the constitutionality of the state court's decision. The effort paid off; in 1985, Judge Haddon Lee Sarokin of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey ruled that Carter and Artis had not received a fair trial, saying that the prosecution had been "based on racism rather than reason and concealment rather than disclosure." He chided the State of New Jersey for having withheld evidence regarding Bello's problematic polygraph testing and set aside the convictions. New Jersey prosecutors appealed Sarokin's ruling to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and filed a motion with the Court to return Carter to jail pending the outcome of the appeal. [9] The Court denied this motion [10] and eventually upheld Sarokin's opinion, affirming his Brady analysis without commenting on his other rationale. The prosecutors appealed to the United States Supreme Court , which declined to hear the case. [11] . These rulings left the prosecutors with the choice of either trying Carter and Artis for a third time or dismissing the indictments. In 1988 New Jersey prosecutors filed a motion to dismiss the original indictments brought against Carter and Artis. "It is just not legally feasible to sustain a prosecution, and not practical after almost 22 years to be trying anyone," said NJ Attorney General W. Cary Edwards. Acting Passaic County Prosecutor John P. Goceljak said several factors made a retrial impossible, including concerns about whether Bello could still be a convincing eyewitness and the unavailability of other witnesses. Goceljak also doubted whether the prosecution could reintroduce the racially motivated crime theory due to the federal court rulings. [12] Furthermore, John Artis had already been paroled and would not have been returned to prison even had he been re-convicted. The motion to dismiss was granted, effectively dropping all charges. [13]

Is Rubin Hurricane Carter guilty?

The answer really depends on what the question means. If the question means, "Was Rubin Carter finally convicted?". then the answer is "No." The final disposition of the case was that the conviction was set aside. The State of New Jersey decided not to try him again (although it could have), and dismissed the original indictment. Depending on how that was done, it might still be possible to prosecute Carter for murder. If the question means, "Was he involved in the murders of three people at the Lafayette Grill at about 2:30 am on June 17, 1966?", well, that's a more complicated question. Two different prosecution teams, two different juries, and two different trial judges all believed -- beyond a reasonable doubt -- that Carter WAS involved, and the Supreme Court of New Jersey confirmed that decision on several occasions. But there was none of the evidence that we usually regard as conclusive (e.g., fingerprints, confession, DNA) found.
