A Detroit hit man in prison for eight murders said he's willing to publicly take responsibility for four more to help clear a young man who claims he's innocent of the slayings and confessed at age 14 only to satisfy police.

Vincent Smothers' testimony would be the most crucial evidence yet to try to persuade a judge to throw out Davontae Sanford's guilty plea and free him from a nearly 40-year prison sentence. In an interview with The Associated Press, Smothers declared: "He's not guilty. He didn't do it."

Smothers said he never used a 14-year-old accomplice — blind in one eye and learning disabled — to carry out his paid hits, mostly victims tied to Detroit's drug trade. Ironically, there's no dispute that Smothers confessed to the so-called Runyon Street slayings when he was captured in 2008, but prosecutors have never charged him and never explained why.

"I understand what prison life is like; it's miserable. To be here and be innocent — I don't know what it's like," Smothers said of Sanford, who is now 19. "He's a kid, and I hate for him to do the kind of time they're giving him."

Given this ground breaking news we seek the immediate release of Davontae Sanford. Help us to end this gross miscarriage of justice, sign, share and be counted...No Justice No Peace!

    Now that I know about Davontae I will never forget him and never stop doing what I can to raise awareness of this incredible injustice. We'll work together and get him freed.

    The injustices done to this boy should be criminal and anyone who perpetuates it should have to spend two days in prison for every day Davontae Sanford has had to. It's disgusting that the legal system can lock up innocent children just to get a win or close a case. It's even more deplorable that they get away with it scott free. Give Davontae the chance at life that you stole from him.

    My late Dad, a proud Michigander born in Mt. Clemens, would be both outraged and heartsick at this rank injustice and mistreatment of a vulnerable person.
