Payback For Coerced Confessions In Chicago
Our attorneys prosecute police officers and departments throughout Greater Chicago and Illinois for misconduct in coerced confession cases. In some cases, police officers and detectives actually beat confessions out of suspects.
Coerced confessions follow false arrests and lead to wrongful convictions. When police officers get frustrated, cannot produce enough evidence of a crime or cannot find a suspect to pin a crime to, they may coerce or beat a confession out of an innocent victim. Hundreds, perhaps thousands of people across the nation have gone to jail and prison for crimes they did not commit.
A criminal conviction gives you a permanent criminal record and may lead to a lengthy prison sentence, which can be a substantial portion of your life that you never get back.
Convicted felons have substantially reduced rights, and people with any criminal record have difficulty getting jobs, getting into educational programs, renting apartments and getting loans.
