Lantern Books (2012)

Jens Soering is a prize-winning author of nine books who has been unjustly imprisoned since 1986. In 2010 to 2012, new DNA-tests, a new witness and a long-lost FBI crime scene profile emerged which support his claim of innocence - but the Commonwealth of Virginia will not let him return to his native country of Germany.
Listen to a WVTF Public Radio production by Sandy Hausman or read the transcript.
A full-length documentary film about Jens' case will be released in early 2016. You can watch the movie trailer here .
On the following pages you will find background information as well as current developments relating to the Soering case. There are detailed explanations, numerous press reports as well as several TV interviews.

On November 9, 2015, The New Yorker published a long but unfortunately misleading article about the case. You can read Jens' response here. The letter was mailed to the editor of The New Yorker by certified mail. The editor did not respond.
