If they controlled the world

If today's Conservatives, Tea Partiers, and Trumpery nuts controlled the world in 1989, Anthony Sanborn would have been put to death.

Judge sets bail for Anthony Sanborn 30 years after murder conviction

PORTLAND — The key witness in a 1989 murder that sent a teenage boy to prison for decades recanted Thursday and accused authorities of coercing her testimony, a stunning declaration that led a judge to set bail, a packed courtroom to gasp in surprise and the defendant's wife to sink to her knees.

Anthony Sanborn, who has served 27 years in prison for the murder of his childhood girlfriend, 16-year-old Jessica Briggs, dropped his head into his hands in apparent disbelief after Hope Cady testified that as a 13-year-old she was pressured by police and prosecutors into identifying Sanborn, then 16, as the killer.

"They basically told me what to say," Cady said.
