Helpful resources on involuntary and false confessions

When last we wrote about we Brendan Dassey, the 7th Circuit, sitting en banc, had vacated the writ of habeas corpus issued the Eastern District of Wisconsin. Dassey has since filed a cert petition in SCOTUS, and numerous organizations have filed amicus briefs in support of it. If you have a case involving a possibly involuntary or false confession (whether by a juvenile or an adult), you might want to take a look at the pro-defense research and arguments presented by the Juvenile Law Center, Professors of Criminal Law and Procedure, Current and Former Prosecutors (seriously), Independent Law Enforcement Instructors and Consultants (yes, them too), the American Psychological Association, and, of course, our heroes at the Innocence Network. Lots of good stuff in these briefs!
