Rubin “Hurricane” Carter spent 19 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit. Last month Judge H. Lee Sarokin, who released Carter from prison 28 years ago, was surprised to get a call from Carter. “I want yours to be the last voice I hear before I pass away, because you were the one who gave my life back to me. I love you, man.” They both had a cry. Several days later Carter died from cancer. Every year Carter had called Judge Sarokin on the anniversary of his release. Carter, who gained fame as a boxer, was never bitter about his incarceration and was positive to the end, said Judge Sarokin. “I was honored to know him and be his friend” (Huffington Post, April 23).
