Under what circumstances can a confession be considered inadmissible? Jesse was asked to give a lie detector test which he did, but during the test he broke down started crying and the test was stopped at which time Jesse was asked what was wrong and that's when he told the officers what had occured between himself and the girl.
Would it help to bring up some of the facts pertaining to his original conviction? Jesse was 14 and his sister was 11 at the time.
Jesse' sister reported to a school employee that he had "goosed" her above her clothing. When Jesse was brought into the police station for questioning on this incident. His grandmother was asked to leave to get his medicine from home and while she was gone the officer got Jesse to give his "confession" which was written by the officer and signed by Jesse. There were no legal representatives for Jesse present at the time the "confession" was procurred. The caseworker at the time told his grandmother to go a head and let the confession and the charges stand as Jesse would get the help for his mental problems that his grandmother could not afford to get for him. Would it help to bring this up for this current charge?
