The NY Times has a really interesting article today on how innocent people end up confessing to crimes they didn’t commit and how they end up seeming to know things only the guilty person should know. The article reports on a study done by a law professor at the University of Virginia.  Here’s a link to a place where the professor’s study can  be downloaded, here’s the link to the article’s appendix, and here’s a link to the library of documents related to people who confessed but who were exonerated later by DNA evidence. It’s very interesting stuff.
