Not all who confess are guilty

Read this op-ed from ⁦‪an actual exoneree-turned-lawyer describing his own false confession.

I was released almost eighteen long and terrible years later, after new evidence and witnesses established others were responsible for the crime and disproved the story that had been fed to me during my interrogation. There wasn’t any blood on the barbells after all, and there was nothing but a sliver of watermelon on the knife. As I did, Dassey is fighting his conviction now, while the world watches.
