It can be very stressful to be in a room where law enforcement officers are accusing you of committing crimes you didn’t commit. They are trained in techniques to elicit confessions, which can include false promises, extensive questioning, confusion, threats of harsher penalties, sleep deprivation, and other psychological coercion. If you succumbed to any of these techniques and confessed to a crime of which you are innocent, you need the representation of an experienced criminal defense attorney – fast.

What to Do if You Make a False Confession

You have rights. Those rights could be broken if you gave a confession under the following circumstances:
