Why Innocent People Confess — Update
Last month, we wrote a piece here on reasons why innocent people wind up confessing to crimes they didn’t commit. It’s a horrible thought, yet it happens far too often. (For tips on defending cases involving a confession, see our CLE lecture over at West Legal Ed Center.)
Anyway, there’s a good article in the latest issue of New York Magazine called “I Did It: Why do people confess to crimes they didn’t commit?” It’s worth a read, so we figured we’d give you all the link.
