Oct 01, 2009 False confessions by juveniles are frequent
False confessions by juveniles are more frequent than by adults, as confirmed in this video. Of course, false confessions run rampant across age lines.
In particular, see the last 90 seconds of the video, highlighting a sample of juveniles convicted but ultimately exonerated, sometimes more than a decade — or even decades — after being arrested.
Thanks to a listserv member for posting this video.
