Almost every day we hear about men and women being wrongfully convicted for crimes they did not commit. Recently, Four Navy veterans were pardoned by Virginia’s Governor for murdering a woman in Norfolk 20 years ago. Despite a confession by another man and DNA evidence that matched at the crime scene, these four men were convicted and sentenced to life in prison. The men were pressured during prolonged police interrogations and gave false confessions following threats of the death penalty. Most of the information that led to their pardons resulted from police misconduct. Having an attorney that is dedicated to your case is imperative, especially when things go wrong initially and internally.
