? False Confessions and Forensic Interviewing

by | Apr 19, 2019 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Police-induced false confessions are among the leading causes of wrongful convictions and since the late 1980s, six studies alone have documented approximately 250 interrogation-induced false confessions. Police-induced false confessions occur primarily in the more serious cases, especially homicides and other high-profile felonies. More than 80 percent of the 125 false confessions documented by Professors Steve Drizin and Richard Leo occurred in homicide cases. 

In fact, false confessions make for the leading cause of wrongful convictions in homicide cases. Learn why people falsely confess to serious crimes they never committed and get some important tips on forensic interviewing from two of the nation’s top forensic interviewers on this fascinating episode of “A Thread of Evidence.”

I enjoyed your podcast on false confessions. During my law enforcement career, I have witnessed two confessions later determined to be false. The first occurred when I was interviewing a suspect by myself and the second occurred as I monitored someone else interviewing a suspect that I had previously interviewed. Both cases involved missing children in Texas. Minimization was used as an interrogation tactic in both interviews. Both suspects were in the vulnerable population of those who might falsely confess, i.e., both were adult males with cognitive impairments—one slight, one more apparent. In both cases, I understood the confessions might have been unreliable because of my training in false confessions. After subsequent attempts to verify details of both confessions, each were determined to be highly improbable and investigative resources were directed elsewhere. Both cases are now solved so we know the confessions were false. In a perfect world, false confessions do not survive the scrutiny of thorough investigations. However, through the work of the Innocence Project, we know people have falsely confessed and neither the investigators who obtained the confessions, their co-workers, their managers, the prosecutors, nor anyone else influential in these investigations realized that something was seriously wrong. Ineffective counsel appears to be another common element in these cases. While this does not excuse a faulty investigation, this is another “safety-net” failure in the process that allows false confessions to become wrongful convictions. Hopefully, as more and more law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and defense attorneys become educated on the earmarks of false confessions, the need to fully record suspect interviews to look for these earmarks, and the need to corroborate confessions, the notion that false confessions can potentially lead to wrongful convictions will become a thing of the past.

The Assault on Freedom of Speech

The Assault on Freedom of Speech

Free Speech is under direct attack, from the White House, courts, even schools, and corporations. It seems many Americans equate freedom of speech with agreeing with what is said, rather than recognizing the importance of allowing those with differing opinions that opportunity to speak. Today, let’s review a recent Supreme Court case about freedom of speech…

Crushing the Lifeblood of Medical Science

Crushing the Lifeblood of Medical Science

The case at hand is the failure of the COVID-19 vaccines to stop the Delta variant and the emerging sources of data leading to the conclusion that the vaccines are not generally safe. So at a time of major moves by federal agencies, health systems, and schools to call for mandates of the COVID-19 vaccines, there is concern that the only voice left to discuss the risks and benefits…

Time to Act, Just Say NO!

Just say NO to Obama, who thinks nothing of having an 11 million dollar birthday bash in his 11 million dollar mansion while he calls you a racist who needs to be taxed more. Say no to RINOS running the GOP. Do not leave your precincts without conservative representation. Otherwise, the RINOS will prevail. Say NO to Facebook and Twitter…

We don’t have a Racism Problem; We have a Leftism Problem

The Federal Policy of Affirmative Action in education has been in place for 55 years. However, the courts meant this to be a temporary fix to past alleged discrimination against minority admissions to elite colleges and high schools. Technically, it violates the fourteenth amendment and the 1964 Civil Rights Law. But the Courts agreed to look the other way for a set period…

The Amazing Power of Everyday People

The Amazing Power of Everyday People

It’s time to challenge our false thinking that elites are the influencers of society. They are not!

Enslaving the American Mind

Enslaving the American Mind

Governments and corporations alike are using their influence to prevent you from seeing things they don’t like. Even questioning what certain government officials are doing is now referred to as insurrection or anti-government extremism. The law does not make us subjects of governments, but its master. Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, have no legal ability to force us, we voluntarily submit. The same for Walmart, Target, and Amazon…

GenZ Just May Save America

We’ve seen the threats, we’ve understood the threats, but we haven’t acted on the threats. The Generation Z group of young, activated people today is a breath of fresh air.

Meet Joe Mitchell, Amber Rae Hulse, and Brett Galaszewski; this message will give you hope…

Aristocrats in Washington, DC Should Read the Constitution

From the kangaroo January 6th committee in the House to investigations of certain governors, rank has its privileges. From hiding information from us to telling us how to live our lives, these aristocrats effectively tell us how to live, and if we question them, they sic the dogs on us. And both parties are guilty of it…
