The transcript of an interview Charlotte-Mecklenburg police had several months ago with the teen who pled no contest to second-degree murder charges earlier this week has been released.

Brock Franklin, 18, was sentenced to at least 12 years in prison for causing the wrong-way crash that killed two people in February. Officers say he was drunk at the time.

In the very detailed 51-page report from the interview, which took place nearly three months after the crash, Franklin explains exactly what he drank that night at an underage drinking party. In front of Alcohol Law Enforcement agents, Franklin’s attorney and a representative from the district attorney’s office, Franklin said he consumed several highly potent beers.

He says he drank two Steel Reserve 211 beers, which have higher alcohol content than regular beer, and two 211 Blacks, with just over 8 percent alcohol by volume. The beers are 24 ounces, making them the equivalent of four regular beers.

Franklin says he then drank two regular 12-ounce beers, with a little more than 6 percent alcohol.

By his guess, those six beers were drinking 11 regular beers. He says he stopped drinking, and doesn’t know what happened after 11:15 p.m. on Feb. 18. Franklin says he blacked out, but could still walk and talk.

Franklin says someone told him that another person at the party spiked his drink with a drug, and that he never allows anyone to bring alcohol into his Jeep.

After the crash, officers found beer cans in the vehicle. Friends also told police they tried to stop him from driving that night.

all of this is a lie.

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- Brock Franklin's new lawyer was back in court Wednesday requesting a trial. The judge denied his request. The attorney says he'll appeal the decision.

After Franklin killed two people while driving drunk on February 19, 2006, he became something of Charlotte's poster child for the negative effects of underage drinking.

Franklin was 18 when he drove the wrong way down I-485 and killed 23-year-old Eddel Rivera and 22-year old Richard Bryant. They were engaged. Franklin later blew a .12, well past the legal drinking limit in North Carolina.

Franklin was found guilty of murder two. Murder means you must prove malice.

Today Franklin's new attorney, Charlotte veteran Paul Whitfield, says he filed a motion for appropriate relief because he thinks he can overcome the presumption of malice. A judge denied the motion, saying there wasn't enough convincing evidence.

"Our position is that because he was drugged -- and there seems to be plenty of evidence today that he was drugged by somebody," said Whitfield, "is that he was oblivious and could not possibly have intended to drive into the vehicle. It wasn't malicious intent."

Whitfield went on to say Peter Demas is the person responsible for "drugging" Franklin. He says Demas spiked Franklin's drink. Whitfield claims there's a witness who says Demas confessed to doing so.

Back when the story was breaking, Demas's attorney said Demas did admit to buying the beer he and Franklin took to the party. It has always known Demas was close to what happened that night. The accusations he drugged Franklin are all new.

Only Whitfield says Demas isn't in the country right now to question.

"Two people called yesterday and said he went to Greece," said Demas. "I'm not sure why he left."

You would think if a person is resuscitated 2X and in a coma it would be impossible to blow to get a BAC recording.
Everything the media has said about this young man is false.

Georges differences were he would not investigate or talk to any of the people at the party.
He knew of the drugging.
We fought about it a lot.
He said it did not matter.....
I would like to ask any parent. Would it matter to you, if your child was being hunted down, drugged , beaten and left for dead.
I think it would matter.
That's some bad s###t. Laughrun should be disbarred for doing his clients that way.
