Murderer’s Confession Caught on Tape


As Avalon proceeded, Scott revealed that prior to the 2010 hearing, Prosecutor John Aguero had an unrecorded meeting with Scott where “[Aguero] told me to stay — keep the same story I had about the — about the robbery of the car. And I did.”

Apparently, Scott had been under the impression that Aguero could influence an upcoming parole hearing. After saying he lied under oath at the 2010 hearing, Scott said “I was trying — I was trying to get — I was trying to get out of prison.”

Jeremy Scott’s life in prison has been one of loneliness and solitude.
