Fairbanks Four released from prison under settlement with state


FAIRBANKS -- The men known as the Fairbanks Four, convicted of the 1997 murder of a Fairbanks teenager and imprisoned for 18 years, were released Thursday after a settlement was reached with the state.

The court approved the settlement with the four men earlier Thursday, and after the courtroom was opened to the public, Fairbanks Superior Court Judge Paul Lyle vacated the men's convictions, returning them to pretrial status. The state, represented by Attorney General Craig Richards, said it won't retry the case.
