He was 17, shaken and ready to say anything to get out of the police interrogation room after five hours of questioning, said University of Virginia law professor Stephen Braga, who helped to clear Tankleff 18 years later.

“The confession was not recorded, not signed and … didn’t match the physical evidence at the scene,” Braga said.
