CA man cleared because of DNA

The Los Angeles Times reports a man charged with molesting and then drowning his daughter was let go because of a false confession. The man claims that police coerced him into confessing during a 14 1/2 hour confession, promising him a lenient sentence if he said it was an accident.

The Center for Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University investigated the case and said it seemed to have all the characteristics of a false confession case.

    Very nice work on your blog, It was fun to read! I am still not done reading everything, but I bookmarked you! I really like reading about dna testing and I even have an dna testing secrets blog if you want some more content to discuss.
