These highlights of Geraldo Rivera’s 1984 “20/20” exposé of charlatan dog handler John Preston don’t make it clear whether he addressed an Ohio federal court finding Preston a fraud in the summer of 1982, when Julius Manning confessed to a number of Post Office crimes that included one that Dale Sutton was serving time for, based on Preston’s perjuries. Sutton was released from custody in January of 1983.
Even if Rivera didn’t include the information, it was known to prosecutors and public defenders nationwide. Gary Bennett was tried and convicted in January of 1984 based on Preston’s perjuries.
One of Bennett’s defenders was Norm Wolfinger, the Brevard/Seminole State Attorney that refused to charge George Zimmerman in Trayvon Martin’s death, and refused to charge the three officers that – with premeditation – kicked, beat and tased 66-year-old dementia-suffering Albert Flowers within an inch of his life.
