I spent 21 years in prison for a murder I didn’t commit, and my story was just made into a movie. AMA.
Hi Reddit, my name is Colin Warner and you read that headline right. I was arrested in 1980 for the murder of a young man in New York City even though I was on the other side of town when it happened. I wasn’t exonerated until 2001. With me is Phil Desgranges, a staff attorney with the New York Civil Liberties Union who can help answer some of the more legal-based questions you might have. I’ve also included links to a website with a timeline of events you can reference, as well as the trailer for Crown Heights, an Amazon Studios movie coming out tomorrow that’s based on my true story. AMA.

EDIT: Thank you everyone so much for your time and questions. That's all the time I have for now, but your questions have truly touched me. Hopefully some of my answers did the same for you.
