What do I do after being coerced into giving a confession?
Unfortunately, law enforcement officers sometimes use questionable tactics in interrogations to try to get a confession. If the police office believes you are guilty of committing a crime, they may try and force a confession, even if the confession is false.
If you believe that you were coerced into giving a confession, contact an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney will help find ways to prove your innocence and remedy the situation. But it’s important to do this as soon as possible, because it’s much harder to prove your innocence after taking a plea bargain or being found guilty by a jury.
