Deaf man wrongly convicted for 19 years!
This story if it is true is simply amazing!
19yr old deaf man Stephen Brodie was arrested in 1991 for stealing quarters from a vending machine. When he got to the police station instead they questioned him for 18 hours without an interpretor on a different crime (rape of a 5yr old girl) until he confessed to this crime and several others that the Police admit they 'made up'. There was no other physical evidence and after being convicted he was sent to Jail in Texas. Brodie says, if he gets out of prison, "I'm getting out of Texas.".
