An account of the Giles-Johnson case in which three young black males, James Giles, his brother John Giles, and their friend Joe Johnson, were accused of raping a sixteen-year-old white girl in Montgomery County, Maryland, on July 21, 1961. Despite their pleas of innocence, contradictory testimony by the accuser, and exonerating evidence in the state's attorney's office, the three men were convicted and sentenced to death.
