The Story of the Fairbanks Four Who Gained Justice on Thursday


FAIRBANKS — On Thursday, December 17, 2015, Superior Court Judge Paul Lyle signed an order vacating the judgments of conviction against George Frese, Kevin Pease, Marvin Roberts, and Eugene Vent—the men now known as the Fairbanks Four—and ordered their immediate release.

After eighteen years of imprisonment for crimes they did not commit, the Four walked out of the Fairbanks Correctional Center, dressed in civilian clothes, as free men for the first time since their arrests on October 11 and 12, 1997.
