You are a forensic psychologist working with Forensic
Consultants, Inc. An attorney is using your services as a
consultant in a case. During a meeting with the attorney, the
attorney tells you that the client, while undergoing police
interrogation, confessed to murder. When the attorney asked
the client, the client reported to being not guilty.
As you conduct a preliminary investigation, draw up a plan on
how you will assist your the attorney with this case. The plan
should answer the following questions posed by the attorney:
1. What specific factors about police interrogative tactics do
you think will be important to the defense strategy? Discuss
interrogation tactics that lead to false confession, specifying at
least two examples and explain the reason they are considered
coercive. Include information about how this would look in an
actual interrogation and how the client experienced this
2. Will you look for any specific personality characteristics in
the client? What are they and why will they help or hurt your
case? Are issues of competency going to come up? Discuss
information about what types of people are more at risk with
coercive interrogation tactics. Include at least one research
study that has demonstrated this risk.
3. What type of personality assessment instrument will you
want to use to either identify or rule out the characteristics
listed in question 2? Be specific and support your answer:
Identify at least one psychological test that can be used and
include information on why it would be useful in determining
whether a person was vulnerable.
Based on the client's response to police interrogation, how
should you conduct your interview? Specifically, what should
you avoid when attempting to gather accurate information
from the client?
Create a presentation to give to the attorney. You will need to
explain each of your arguments. You should expect to have 30
minutes to present your arguments.
