SCOTUS is likely to have several related appeals--from the young, innocent sailors who came to be known as The Norfolk Four. In the appeals of Williams and Dick, the state of Virginia, eager to protect convictions based solely on false confessions, challenged the timing of these appeals. These, and the one by Wilson, are based on new evidence--the bully detective who coerced their confessions is now in prison for unrelated felonies involving other criminal defendants. All three appeals were filed with the eastern district of Virginia.
