Two governors and attorney generals have ignored Davontae’s plight of being coerced into falsely confessing to the impossible – carrying off a quadruple homicide although blind in one eye, developmentally disabled, and only 14, proving that conviction corruption is bipartisan and high-level, and stubbornly protects the self-sullied reputations of police and prosecutors that deserve to lose their freedom along with their jobs.
Davontae Sanford should be allowed to withdraw his guilty plea so that he can go to trial based on the newly discovered evidence that a hit man says he and another person committed murder and Davontae was not there.
An Associated Press Article interview – conducted by Ed White on January 30, 2012
A Detroit hit man in prison for eight murders said he’s willing to publicly take responsibility for four more to help clear a young man who claims he’s innocent of the slayings and confessed at age 14 only to satisfy police.
Vincent Smothers’ testimony would be the most crucial evidence yet to try to persuade a judge to throw out Davontae Sanford’s guilty plea and free him from a nearly 40-year prison sentence. In an interview with The Associated Press, Smothers declared: “He’s not guilty. He didn’t do it.”
