Carlos Montero, now 23, has spent almost seven years in New York City's Rikers Island jail awaiting trial and it still isn't clear when his case will be heard.

Prosecutors had offered Montero a plea deal which would see him serve only 15 years, but he turned it down, insisting he did not take part in the robbery and is innocent.
