HOW THE POLICE GENERATE FALSE CONFESSIONS

According to the Innocence Project, ". . . many of the nation's more than 360 wrongful convictions overturned by DNA evidence involved some form of a false confession." While some people may find it difficult to understand why an individual would confess to a crime he/she did not commit, this webinar will cover how police generate false confessions. Mr. Trainum will expose the tactics that law enforcement uses to make confessions happen, how innocent people become suspects and confessed criminals, and some of the contributing factors. This webinar will guide defense counsel on various approaches to address this issue.

This webinar is approved for one substantive law, practice and procedure credit hour by the Pennsylvania CLE Board. PACDL is an accredited distance learning provider in Pennsylvania.
