Why do innocent people confess to crimes during police interrogations? This is one question that will be answered during the 7th annual James W. Carey Memorial Lecture. Featured lecturer, Kyle Scherr, associate professor of psychology at Central Michigan University, will discuss why innocence can still lead to injustice by presenting evidence from wrongful conviction cases and experimental psychological science. Scherr will present "Arresting Signs: From Miranda Waivers, Through False Confessions to Wrongful Convictions" September 27 in Loosemore Auditorium.
