The Innocence Project
The term “false confession” means that a person confessed to a crime that he or she did not commit. There are different reasons for this decision; all of them can be divided into external and internal. The first category means the person was forced to confess to a crime because of external circumstances like police officers’ violence, indirect evidences or witnesses’ testimonial. For example, two men Jose Montanez and Armando Serrano “were convicted of a 1993 murder based on the testimony of an incentivized witness who was allegedly fed information about the crime by Reynaldo Guevara, a former Cook County detective” (innocenceproject.org). The “inner” category means people make false confessions on their own free will
