"The Lunchbox Series” presents: “The Problem of Police-Induced False Confessions,” a lecture by Professor Larry White.
Innocent suspects sometimes confess to crimes they did not commit. In fact, researchers have documented more than 300 proven false confessions in recent decades. In almost every case, the innocent person made self-incriminating statements only after being accused and questioned at length by police interrogators. In his talk, Professor White will assess the extent of the problem, explain why innocent suspects sometimes confess falsely, and identify potential remedies to the problem of police-induced false confessions.
