"The Confessions" Film Screening and Discussion

October 29, 2011 @ 12:00 am

The NoVa Chapter's Fall Event, held on Oct. 29, 2011 at George Mason University in Fairfax, featured the screening of a 90-minute documentary that originally aired on PBS's "Frontline" TV show about "The Norfolk Four."  Titled "The Confessions," the documentary examines the legal machinations behind the "Norfolk Four" case in which four U.S. Navy sailors had confessed to the 1997 rape-murder of a Norfolk, VA woman--a crime they did not commit.  The screening was followed by an extended discussion led by Stephen Northup, an attorney for one of the Norfolk Four, and by lobbyist Nancy Granese.
