A Damning Eyewitness

Taryn Simon - Larry Mayes [from "The Innocents"] (2002)

This is the scene of the arrest - the Royal Inn in Gary, Indiana. Larry Mayes is hiding beneath a mattress that muffles aggressive pounds on the door. He is about be sentenced 80-years for rape, robbery, and unlawful deviate conduct. He is about to serve 18.5 years for crimes he didn't commit. The mattresse has never experienced such urgent dreaming.
