John N. Fogleman (unrelated) was the lead prosecutor in the conviction of the West Memphis Three (wm3) -- the infamous case of three Arkansas teenagers (Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley Jr.) who were convicted in 1994 of killing three boys. They claimed innocence while spending 18 years in prison.
Following a successful decision in 2010 by the Arkansas Supreme Court regarding newly produced DNA evidence, the West Memphis Three reached a deal with prosecutors. On August 19, 2011, they entered Alford pleas, which allow them to assert their innocence while acknowledging that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict them. Judge David Laser accepted the pleas and sentenced the three to time served. They were released with ten-year suspended sentences, having served 18 years and 78 days in prison.
Devil's Knot is a 2014 biographical crime-drama thriller film based on the story of the West Memphis Three starring Reese Witherspoon, Kevin Durand, Stephen Moyer, Colin Firth, Elias Koteas, and Bruce Greenwood.
Presently, John N. Fogleman (unrelated) is a judge for the Second Circuit of the Arkansas Circuit Courts. He is in Division 8, serving Clay, Craighead, Crittenden, Greene, Mississippi and Poinsett Counties.
