60 Minutes — California Felony Murder Rule Interview
This is two parts of a 60 Minutes documentary about teenagers convicted with the felony murder rule in California in the 1990’s. The case is very different from the Elkhart 4 because one of the group did commit a murder (unlike The Elkhart 4). The other boys did not know the person who committed the murder was carrying a knife. The focus is on Brandon Hein who received Life without parole. After significant publicity the Governor of California commuted Brandon Hein’s sentence to 29 years (after this documentary was aired).
