‘Both witnesses have since recanted their statements...‘
Antoine Anderson is currently serving a natural life sentence without the possibility of parole. He has been incarcerated since he was only 17 years old, falsely charged with two (2) separate murders.
On November 13, 1998, Mr. Anderson was taken to the Area One Police Department, where he was beaten and tortured by two detectives. Both detectives have a history of torturing suspects into giving false confessions and manipulating witnesses to give statements.
Two witnesses, minors in age, were coerced into giving false confessiong against Mr. Anderson at the behest of the two detectives. Both witnesses have since recanted their statements and claim to have also been coerced by the detectives. One claims to also have been beaten.
Both detectives have decided to invoke their Fifth Amendment right not to speak on anything pertaining to this matter. Mr. Anderson is currently being misrepresented by state-appointed counsel.
This is his story.
