    Confession does not always mean guilty. This fellow was lucky. Others have not been lucky.

    After 15 years the main lesson he should have learned was that confessing to a crime has consequences too.

    I learned from this that there can be people free in society who need to be on death row because some idiot covered for them by confessing to a crime someone else committed. You can't blame the system for this one, or use it as an anti death penalty argument.

    He isn't just "lucky".

    He is also stupid.

    If he had been executed, he would have gotten exactly what he asked for.

    Suicide by state.
