American homicide, convicted along with John Artis in 1967 of the shotgun killings of three persons in a Paterson, NJ bar on 6/17/1966. A former boxer with a criminal record who spent time in jail, he nonetheless claimed innocence. His case was supported by celebrities including Bob Dylan and Muhammad Ali. At a retrial 2/09/1977, his conviction was upheld and he was given three life terms in prison. Shortly after the retrial conviction his wife had their baby son.

Carter wrote his autobiography "The 16th Round." In 1985, after 19 years in prison, he was freed, pending an appeal based on new evidence. The State decreed in February 1988 to overturn his conviction after a 22-year legal battle.

A movie of Carter's story, The Hurricane, opened on 12/29/1999. Starring Denzel Washington, it was nominated for awards.
