the real rapist confesses. "
It's on Encore-Drama (Pacific time zone feed). It's your new favorite
movie - check it out.
Thanks, I wasn't familiar with this case (Douglas Forbes).
Whoops, correction, it wasn't a false rape allegation, it was multiple
victims identifying the wrong individual - bad eyewitness testimony.
Well, it was still a false conviction. Alleged victims weren't
to blame (at least weren't acting out of malice), but an innocent
man still went to prison. The kind of victim that Tiny cares
not a whit about...
A short article about the case can be found at:
And an interesting footnote to the case at:
BTW: I read in a footnote that when Forbes was released, at least
some of his alleged victims moved out of the state. Apparently they
were still not convinced that he was innocent.
