If that's the case, he went through the whole trial knowing his son did it.
He then also knew that there was enough evidence to have a retrial if needed.
What could possibly happen to him being inocent? He knew the gloves would not fit. He probly knew about the knife, the hat and other evidence that could save him from the death penalty.
The death penlty is anyway the core of the problem. It's only because of the death penalty that makes this all quite reasonable. Without it the prossecution probably would have acomplished a confession already way before the trial.
