Police officers wait outside the courtoom.

Steven Drizin, clinical law professor at Northwestern University School of Law and legal director of the Center on Wrongful Convictions, dicusses The New York State Court of Appeals ruling that police lied too much to a murder suspect. Drizin explains the case and the line between an acceptable lie in an interrogation and a lie that forces a false confession. Plus: a bill for remedies for forced confessions.
