The Law Works - False Confessions

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZy1vXhaxW4

When a defendant in a criminal case confesses to the crime, that should be the end of it. Right? What if the defendant then says, "no, I was lying," or says that the police forced the confession? Professor Valena Beety of the WVU College of Law and Attorney Ifeoma Ike join host Dan Ringer to talk about False Confessions on this episode of The Law Works.

This episode premiers Thursday, October 10 at 8:30 pm on West Virginia PBS.
