Illinois, New York, and Oregon move to outlaw deception by interrogators.
Deception, of course, is a long-recognized risk factor for false confessions. The Center on Wrongful Convictions and the Innocence Project are working with stakeholders in three states that have introduced bills that would ban the use of deception in the interrogation room: Illinois, New York, and Oregon. Laura Nirider speaks with special guests: Illinois State Senator Robert Peters; Exoneree and Attorney Marty Tankleff, and Dave Thompson, President, Wicklander-Zulawski.
