Garo  & Limone celebrate Limone’s release outside federal courthouse, 2007

Four men spent decades behind bars for a crime the F.B.I. knew they didn't commit. In 2007, alumnus Victor Garo ( '65) won a landmark civil suit in which the federal government was ordered to pay a record $101.7 million for the wrongful convictions. Then-WBZ-TV reporter Dan Rea ('74) was also key in uncovering the truth and keeping the case in the spotlight.
