The disturbingly candid tape was released by the superior court.
on tape davis describes how he climbed through a window of polly's home, took her and eventually strangled her.
DAVIS:"I STRANGLED HER.. WHILE WE WERE OUT AND SHE WAS COMING BACK TO THE CAR TO GET BACK IN. YOU STRANGLED HER? YEAH. WHAT DID YOU USE TO STRANGLE HER? A PIECE OF CLOTH?
As jurors in the davis trial watched the tape tuesday. one cried and the others appeared grim-faced. before the tape was played jurors were told that davis decided to confess after he learned police had found his palm print in polly's bedroom.
The klaas family called the tape self-serving.
JOE KLAAS, POLLY'S GRANDFATHER.
DAvis is accused of kidnapping polly from her bedroom while the girl and two of her friends were having a sleep-over. that was in october of 1993.
On the confession tape, davis claims he took polly because he was high on drugs and alcohol and said he did not molest the child. DAVIS:"DID YOU TRY TO HAVE SEX WITH HER? NO, I DON'T THINK SO.
Prosecutors say they do not believe all of davis' story. instead they say the tape shows a man trying to make the most of a desperate situation.

Anna Wentworth/Arts Reviewer: Richard Gere is Marty Vale, an arrogant, sharp, and expensive attorney who thinks he knows all the answers.
He takes on 'Pro Bono' the case of a strange sweet looking altar boy charged with the vicious murder of a priest.
As Marty investigates, he turns up some dirt that a lot of people don't want made public.
City Prosecutor, John Mahoney and Marty go back in history.
He shares a little "personal history" with Prosecuting Attorney, Laura Linney.
And that sweet looking Altar Boy is played by Edward Norton.
"Primal Fear" is a meaningless title for an engrossing film. The court case and its aftermath may hold a few surprises, but the plot is generally predictable.
I give this one a "B+" anyway, due to good performances from Gere, Linney, and Norton.))
