I wanted to be arrested, not killed by a bullet. We are thankful for all the Indian television channels’ breaking news support during 26/11. No terrorist attack is possible in India without us or our support. Whether it’s the burning of the Godhra train or Samjhauta express blast; I am guilty of not killing 500 Indians.

In the 1980s, five young women were found raped and brutally murdered in Chicago, Virginia Beach, San Francisco, New York, and Miami. The police could not find the perpetrators of those murders, in spite of their diligence. Those cases were classified as unresolved murder cases and stored in the police archives. After seven years, in the dead of the winter, a man approached a police officer in downtown Chicago and confessed that he had committed those murders, in spite of the polices Miranda warning. The man, who had been hospitalized several times for mental illnesses, alleged that he had been harassed by voices compelling him to confess. Those five murder cases then leaped up from oblivion. The public was shocked. And when they had learned that the rape-murder occurred after the patient was discharged from the psychiatric hospital, they became incensed, blaming the psychiatric hospital for the negligent discharge to the community of a dangerous, mentally ill patient. The following questions were raised: Should the court accept a confession from a mentally ill person? How would the judge adjudicate a defendant who wanted to be executed for his alleged crimes? How would the defense attorney assist a defendant who did not want to present a defense? In what measure was this case going to affect the deinstitutionalization movement of the mentally ill?

Sixteen-year-old Cassie Jo Stoddard agreed to house sit for relatives on the weekend of September 22, 2006. It was something the teenager had done before…but this time something went terribly wrong. When the family returned home at the end of the weekend they found Cassie lying on their living room floor brutally stabbed to death. Detectives focused on two of Cassie’s classmates who had briefly visited her on the night that she was murdered: Torey Adamcik and Brian Draper. Initially both boys denied any knowledge of the crime, but after two separate interrogations, Brian Draper told detectives a chilling story of murder straight out of a horror movie. The two boys were immediately arrested, and a shocking videotape was discovered that seemed to depict the two teens not only planning the cold-blooded murder, but celebrating it. Community outrage was strong and immediate. The public demanded justice. But was the video actually what it appeared to be: a cold-blooded documentary that detailed the plotting of Cassie’s murder; or something else entirely? Could anyone uncover the truth in time and convince a jury that sometimes things aren't always what they appear to be? The Guilty Innocent is narrated by Shannon Adamcik, mother of Torey, one of the accused boys. It takes readers behind the scenes of a trial where prosecutors cared more about public opinion than truth, defense attorneys, who had never argued a murder case, were in over their heads, and a young boy’s life hung in the balance. The United States is the only country in the world that will charge a juvenile as an adult and sentence them to life without parole. As the mother of one such child, I know exactly what happens when a juvenile is placed in adult court where they cannot defend themselves. They are immediately cut off from all human contact, locked in isolation, and railroaded through a justice system they simply cannot comprehend. Consequently, many of these juveniles are sentenced too much longer and harsher terms than their adult counterparts. I've personally lived through this, and I was compelled to write about it. I began for the simple reason that I had lived through this horrendous ordeal and I ached for someone to confide in. But reliving the most painful part of my life was extraordinarily difficult. Ultimately the only reason that I was able to persevere was my deep belief that the story was important and needed to be told. That is still true. This is a true story and no one can tell it better than the people who lived it. A crime reporter can look at the details of a case, but they cannot tell you how it feels to live through it. I can and I did. I used the pre-trial and trial transcripts, copies of the police reports, the autopsy and DNA reports, and DVD recordings of all of the evidence in the case. I've done copious research. But more importantly, I take readers step-by-step through what it feels like when your 16-year-old son is accused of first-degree murder; all the odds are stacked against him; and his defense is in the hands of attorneys you can’t fully trust to come through for you.
