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
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.

for broken constitutional rights. You cannot afford to waste any time
