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. Witnesses say he was with two other men who stabbed one man to death and cut another during an attempted robbery. 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.
