In 1985 Dennis Halstead, John Kogut, and John Restivo were arrested and convicted in Nassau County, NY for the 1984 rape and murder of Teresa Fusco. In June 2003, 18-years later, all three were released from prison as a result of DNA testing. Their freedom was a the result of a 10-year reinvestigation by Centurion Ministries’ Kate Germond and later joined in on the effort were the New York Innocence Project and Pace Law School.
