The Confesions

The other day I watched the 2010 PBS Frontline documentary, The Confessions, about "The Norfolk Four" -- a number of young men who each separately gave confessions to a rape murder of a woman. They were all false confessions, coerced by probably unethical interrogation techniques. But because of these written and recorded statements, and in spite of exculpatory evidence, these men all had to serve lengthy prison sentences.
