False Confessions

False Confessions

One of the most confusing aspects of wrongful convictions is the concept of false confessions. Why would someone admit to something they didn’t do? For this assignment, we will once again go the Innocence Project website:

Watch the video about false confessions, and write a one page reaction paper about what you have viewed.

  1. What did you learn about how and why false confessions occur?
  2. Do you think this is a problem- why or why not?
  3. Do you agree or disagree with the Innocence Project’s proposed solutions to this problem?
