Coerced Confessions of The Central Park Five

Posted by DanielS on Saturday, 04 March 2017 19:30.

NYPD coerced confessions and prosecutors Lederer and Fairstein railroaded five kids (4 black, 1 Puerto Rican) for the 1989 rape and near murder of Trisha Meili (White), an investment banker who was jogging in Central Park. Despite my prejudices, I cannot imagine myself scripting confessions to a serious crime for some black kids to sign. The kids spent years in jail for a crime that they did not commit. As it turns out, a likely suspect, a black serial rapist at the time named Matias Reyes, had committed the crime and could have been pursued, as there was plenty of evidence that could have led NYPD to find him the lone perpetrator. While Reyes was a DNA match that could have been corroborated at the time, Lederer and Fairstein are confronted with the fact that they forced the prosecution through, despite not having a DNA match in the case presented them by the NYPD, despite its coerced confessions and the contradictions that existed between those “confessions.”

FRONTLINE’s, “The Confessions,” 22 March 2017:

The story centers around the so-called Norfolk Four: Eric Wilson, Joe Dick Jr., Derek Tice, and Danial Williams.


The “Norfolk Four,” four U.S. Navy sailors who were wrongly convicted for the 1997 rape and murder of Michelle Moore-Bosko, were fully pardoned on Tuesday by Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

The pardon brings to a close a 20-year legal battle that brought national attention to the issue of false confessions. The four men were all arrested within a year of 18-year-old Moore-Bosko’s murder, sentenced and kept in prison, despite DNA evidence linking another man to the crime. Danial Williams, Joe Dick Jr., Eric Wilson and Derek Tice have maintained for years that they falsely confessed to the crime following hours of intimidating police interrogations.

Williams was the first of the four to be arrested, after a friend of the victim indicated to police that they should take a closer look at him. He was charged with rape and murder less than 24 hours after Moore-Bosko’s body was found. He confessed to the crimes after more than 11 hours of questioning.

“It was just unimaginable to myself at that point, but I had confessed,” Williams told FRONTLINE in the 2010 investigation of the case, The Confessions. A detective named Robert Glenn Ford interrogated Williams, and eventually, the other three men. Ford was later found guilty of two counts of extortion and one count of lying to the FBI in separate cases, and sentenced to 12-and-a-half years in prison.

“Ford is a very intimidating person,” Williams said in The Confessions. “He’s not a big person, but he’s like a bulldog. Once he gets his teeth into you, he doesn’t stop until he gets what he wants from you.”

Despite lacking any evidence connecting Williams to the crime, the Norfolk police developed a theory that he was one of several men involved. Soon Dick, Wilson and Tice would also be arrested and interrogated, resulting in more confessions they said were coerced under intense pressure.

Tice said Ford kept “leaning towards me, yelling at me, calling me a liar, telling me I was going to die.” He asked for a lawyer, but never got to talk to one in the 11 hours before he confessed. When asked why he would confess to a crime he had no part in, Tice recalled how Ford kept telling him he was going to die for lying.

“After the nine hours, my thinking was my only options are to tell him a lie, tell him what he wants to hear and live, or keep telling the truth and die.”
