Rubin Carter net worth: Rubin Carter is an American middleweight boxer who has a net worth of $500 thousand dollars. Rubin Carter was born in Clifton, New Jersey, and after falling into a life of crime in his early-teens, he was locked up in a juvenile detention facility. He escaped the facility and joined the Army. While stationed in West Germany, he began boxing. After returning to the US, he fell back into his old criminal life, and was eventually locked up for four years. After his release, he began boxing again, eventually achieving a ranking of the 3rd best middleweight fighter in the US, in the early 60s. His career began to decline in the mid-60s, however. He fought 40 bouts and won 27 of them, 19 by knock out. He is most widely remembered for being arrested and imprisoned for a triple homicide in New Jersey in which there was absolutely no evidence against him and for which no eyewitnesses recognized him. The case was finally thrown out in 1985, 18 years after the original trial. Rubin's story was first made famous by the Bob Dylan song "Hurricane" and years later was turned into a movie starring Denzel Washington.
Rubin "Hurricane" Carter (born May 6, 1937) is an American middleweight boxer.
In 1966, police arrested Carter for a triple homicide in the Lafayette Bar and Grill in Paterson, New Jersey. Police stopped Carter's car and brought him and another occupant, John Artis, to the scene of the crime. There was little physical evidence. Police took no fingerprints at the crime scene and lacked the facilities to conduct a paraffin test for gunshot residue. None of the eyewitnesses identified Carter or Artis as the shooters. Carter and Artis were tried and convicted twice (1967 and 1976) for the murders, but after the second conviction was overturned in 1985, prosecutors chose not to try the case for a third time.
Carter's autobiography, titled "The Sixteenth Round", was published in 1975 by Warner Books. The story inspired the 1975 Bob Dylan song Hurricane.
From 1993 to 2005, Carter served as executive director of the Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted.


Carter was born in Clifton, New Jersey, the fourth of seven children. He acquired a criminal record and was sentenced to a juvenile reformatory for assault shortly after his 14th birthday. Carter escaped from the reformatory in 1954 and joined the Army. A few months after completing infantry basic training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, he was sent to West Germany. While in Germany Carter began to box for the United States Army.
In May 1956, he received an "Undesirable" discharge, having failed to complete his three-year term of enlistment. He was arrested less than a month later for his escape from the Jamesburg Home for Boys. After his return to New Jersey, Carter was picked up by authorities and sentenced to an additional nine months, five of which he served in Annandale prison. Shortly after being released, Carter committed a series of muggings, including assault and robbery of a middle-aged black woman. He pleaded guilty to the charges and was imprisoned in East Jersey State Prison (f
