Defense attorneys for 15-year-old Sheldon Jefferson and 18-year-old Christopher Davis are trying to convince Judge Franz Zibilich that the confessions the two teens gave to police in the presence of their mothers should not be allowed in their trial on rape and kidnapping charges of a Garden District resident, according to a report by Mike Perlstein of our partners at WWL-TV. A third defendant, Joseph Davis (no relation to Christopher), refused to talk to police, Perlstein reports.
