The Confession – For every innocent man sent to prison, there is a guilty one left on the outside. He doesnâ€™t understand how the police and prosecutors got the wrong man, and he certainly doesnâ€™t care. Travis Boyette is such a man.
In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted and killed a popular high school cheerleader then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted DontÃ© Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.
Now nine years have passed. Travis has just been paroled in Kansas for a different crime; DontÃ© is four days away from his execution. Travis suffers from an inoperable brain tumor. For the first time in his miserable life, he decides to do whatâ€™s right and confess.
But how can a guilty man convince lawyers, judges, and politicians that theyâ€™re about to execute an innocent man?
