The Confession Summary
For every innocent man sent to prison, there is a guilty one left on the outside. He doesnt understand how the police and prosecutors got the wrong man, and he certainly doesnt care. He just cant believe his good luck. Time passes and he realizes that the mistake will not be corrected: the authorities believe in their case and are determined to get a conviction. He may even watch the trial of the person wrongly accused of his crime. He is relieved when the verdict is guilty. He laughs when the police and prosecutors congratulate themselves. He is content to allow an innocent person to go to prison, to serve hard time, even to be executed.
