We have previously addressed the subject false confession a number of times on this blog. Please see False Confessions – How Can That Happen? One of the very egregious cases of false confession we talked about was that of Marty Tankleff, who at 17, was manipulated by police interrogators into falsely confessing to the murder of his parents. After 18 years of wrongful imprisonment, Marty became a lawyer; and a law professor.
Marty has recently authored an article on CNN about false confessions by teenagers, who are particularly vulnerable.
