A young man on trial in the Central Park jogger case testified police bullied him into signing a false confession. Later, he jumped from the stand during cross-examination, saying, "I'm not taking anymore."
Kharey Wise, 18, said on Monday that police hit him, coached him and deceived him to make him confess to the 1989 attack.Defense attorney Colin Moore showed Wise a statement he signed while in police custody. In the statement, Wise implicates himself in the attack on a runner who was gang raped and beaten almost to death.
Wise testified Detective John Hartigan told him to lie.
"I said, `If I tell him a lie, can I go home?' He promised me I could."
