Key Eyewitness Recants Testimony in DiGuglielmo Case
Eyewitness Michael Dillon, who initially told reporters and police at the scene of the shooting that Richard DiGuglielmo shot Charles Campbell in self-defense, but changed his story at trial, has signed an affidavit with the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. At the scene of the shooting, Dillon told reporters and police that it was clearly self-defense: "You see your father getting beat with a bat, you gotta do something about it. So, its self-defense from what I saw." Now, in the affidavit, Dillon says that cops pressured him into altering his story, questioning him on several occasions and keeping him for hours.
