How does coercion impact false confessions?

Innocent people face serious consequences every day for crimes that they did not commit and much of this has to do with coercion. While it sounds like something out of the movies, law enforcement officials often use debilitating tactics to urge a confession and victims are left helpless and confused.

Some of the most common coercion tactics include:

  • Threats of harsher penalties
  • Extensive questioning
  • Purposely confusing the victim
  • Mental duress
  • Ignorance of the law

False confessions are defined as an admission of guilt for a crime that you were not responsible for. Under extreme duress, many individuals choose to admit false guilt in hopes that their innocence will eventually be proved. Unfortunately, without the right legal representation, innocence is often left unproven and those offering up false confessions spend years and even lifetimes in jail.

The most important first step after a false confession is to be aware of your rights.
