Among the questions he will answer are:
- Why do people confess to crimes they didn’t commit?
- What psychological factors play a role in false confessions?
- How can people protect themselves against falsely confessing?
- What can law enforcement, lawyers, and everyday people do to help those who are wrongly incarcerated due to false confessions?
