Free The West Memphis Three

Judge Burnett denied the request for a new trial for the WM3. He sided with the prosecution who argued that there being no DNA evidence at the crime scene did not prove the innocence of the convicted. Though if the Paradise Lost documentaries are to be believed there was no actual evidence connecting the three to the crime in the first place. If I understand the process correctly, the next step is to appeal to the Arkansas Supreme court and then to federal court. Unfortunately this could go on for some time.
