He’s already serving life for the crime but it’s still an amazing admission:
Dorsey claimed he tried to recall his instructions to one of his sheriff’s deputies, Patrick Cuffy, to kill Brown, who had defeated Dorsey in a bitter election campaign in August 2000.
But Brown was shot to death in his driveway on Dec. 15, 2000, three days before he was to replace Dorsey.
Afterward, Dorsey said, he asked Cuffy “Was that you?” He said Cuffy replied, “No, it was M.D.,” referring to Melvin D. Walker, the man later convicted as the triggerman.
Brown’s daughter, Brandy Brown-Rhodes, who attended Thursday’s news conference, called Dorsey’s confession “a joke.”
