Springsteen Confessed a Second Time?

RECEIVED Wed., Oct. 28, 2009

Dear Editor,
    Has everyone forgotten that Robert Springsteen confessed a second time in 1999 [“The Yogurt Shop Saga,” News, Nov. 6]? It is true that every criminal justice system has flaws, but who would confess in 1991, get away with it, but then confess again in 1999? I remember the article when they found him living his life in Lockhart. He confessed, saying that it was a relief to get it off his chest. Everyone needs to remember this.
