FORT MYERS, Fla.- "The whole time we were taking gunshots left and right and I'm just laying on the ground like this," said Jarrett Mundle.

Jarrett Mundle todl investigators he and three other men robbed a house and one started a violent shootout with police. He confessed to the crime but now he says investigators forced him by making him sit in a cold police car for hours on end.

But in the end the judge didn't buy his story. A jury will be able to hear his confession now. Mundle's friends and family walked away dissapointed but say they still feel hopeful he won't be convicted of murder.
