Court Junkie Brief: False Confessions
In this Court Junkie Brief, I speak with Alan Hirsch, a professor and chair of the Justice and Law Studies program at Williams College, in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Alan has also testified as a false confessions expert in over 25 different trials across 16 different states. We talk about why people falsely confess to crimes they didn't commit, the different techniques law enforcement uses in their interrogations and cases involving false confessions. Visit Alan's website - http://www.truthaboutfalseconfessions.com/. Note: At the time of this recording, Brendan Dassey was set to be released from prison. However, after this was recorded, the federal court blocked his release. Please consider supporting Court Junkie with as little as $3 a month via Patreon.com/CourtJunkie.
