"When police chief Earl Prentice Sanders was briefly indicted for an alleged departmental cover-up of wrong-doing by three officers," the Chronicle began investigating his past performance at the department. This ultimately led reporter Seth Rosenfeld to the case of a 13-year-old gang slaying, and how two police officers "improperly withheld evidence" resulting in the "conviction and long prison terms for two innocent men." In the aftermath of the Chronicle's reporting, those men, John Tennison and William Goff, were ultimately declared innocent by the authorities and released from prison.
