Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

In August 2011, after eighteen years in prison, Jason Baldwin, Damien Echols, and Jessie Misskelley (known as "The West Memphis Three") entered an "Alford" plea (which allows them to maintain their innocence while simultaneously acknowledging that the state likely has enough evidence to convict them). They were given credit for the time they had already served and freed instantly. Echols said that if not for the films made about the case by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, the Arkansas justice system "would have murdered me, swept this under the rug, and I wouldn't be anything but a memory right now."
