Jury: Rape, Murder Confession was Faked


A federal jury on Friday ruled that a former state police investigator fabricated a confession that sent Earl Washington Jr. to death row for a rape and murder he didn’t commit. Washington came within nine days of being executed.
A key element behind the 2.25 million-dollar verdict was the claim that the investigator fed significant details to the mildly retarded man. That feeding of details to make a confession more believable is something I've blogged about before: abyss2hope: Ethical Interrogations and the Rape Victim
