Adrian Thomas was originally convicted of causing the death of his 4-month old son in 2008. This was largely a result of his confession under interrogation by the police in Troy, NY.
As previously posted on this blog, Thomas was subjected to a 9 hour highly coercive interrogation by the Troy police: Blatantly Coerced Confession Results in Conviction Reversal.
Thomas’s confession was even the subject of the documentary film Scenes of a Crime.
In a second trial, just concluded June 11, 2014, Adrian Thomas was found not guilty.
