He wanted to spare her a cancer death in prison. Once the actual perpetrators were convicted, he was released and again recanted his confession. He reached a retrial and was acquitted in January 2005. Because of his false testimony two alleged accomplices were innocent of three weeks in custody. Therefore, he was convicted in March of 2006, a probation and a fine.
