Webcast: Wednesday, December 11, 2013
When: 2:00 PM Eastern
CLE: Available for up to *1 hour of CLE where self-study credit is authorized and approved.
Summary: Police press hard for the accused to confess in sexual assault cases. Many of our clients will confess under this type of coercive pressure and at trial we will have to show a jury how and why our client gave a false confession. This presentation will teach the techniques used by police to interrogate suspects and how these techniques can elicit a false confession. It will cover the steps you should take when your theory of defense is that your client gave a false confession when under the duress of interrogation. The presentation will include details on what to elicit from your client during your interviews, what types of experts to hire, how to litigate motions to suppress statements and tips for developing your theory of the case during every phase of trial. It will outline what chapters are essential for an effective cross examination both at motions and trial that show judges and jurors that police used psychologically coercive techniques to extract a false confession from your client.
