Paul Ingram was not a pig farmer, he was a police officer. And Richard Ofshe's account of the case has been criticized on many levels that are worth examining. There is a reason that the judge did not buy Ofshe's claims. Rather than take the New Yorker at face value, I suggest reading Karen Olio and William Cornell's The Facade of Scientific Documentation: A Case Study of Richard Ofshe's Analysis of the Paul Ingram Case (Psychology, Public Policy, and Law, vol. 4, issue # 4, pages 1182-1197). Wright, by the way, was required to publish an unusual New Yorker "correction" for his inflated and inaccurate editorial about these cases a few months later.

Moreover, transcripts of the clemency hearing in the Ingram case reveal that Ingram's own son, who never spoke to Lawrence Wright, corroborated the claims that Professor Brooks describes as "surely" not true. I wonder how Prof. Brooks has come to have a better factual handle on what happened in the Ingram family than Chad Ingram does?

In Jewish law an uncorroborated confession is insufficient for conviction. In contrast, in traditional Chinese law (i.e. the Tang code and its descendants up to 1911), a confession is essential for conviction. That is why the magistrate was permitted to torture the defendant. (This wasn't quite as bad as it sounds as a false conviction had serious consequences for the magistrate.)

What may be most remarkable about this latest twist in the long-festering case is the district attorney’s forthrightness and honesty in dismissing Karr’s multiple confessions to the crime.

Alas, that’s not the standard operating procedure in the U.S.. In most instances, once the police interrogators have got a confession, the suspect is doomed. Not only does this lead to false convictions, it lets the truly guilty escape. Getting confessions comes to appear the easy way to do police work, and that can lead to less than probative results. Confessions should be used to open cases, not to close them.
