West Memphis

West Memphis is the largest city in Crittenden County, Arkansas, United States. The population was 26,245 at the 2010 census, ranking it as the state's 17th largest city, in front of Bella Vista. It is considered part of the Memphis metropolitan area, and is located directly across the Mississippi River from Memphis.

The town was notable in 1994 for convicting three teenagers—known as the West Memphis Three—of murdering three boys. Later DNA evidence undermined the conviction, but prosecutors would only offer Alford pleas: These asserted the suspects' innocence, but acknowledged that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict them—thus sparing the town a lawsuit for the men's 18 years in jail.
