1,251 - Getting a Confession

October 14th, 2016

Episode 467 of 489 episodes

If the police arrest you, don’t tell them anything. Call a lawyer and then listen to this episode. Slow dialog: 1:21 Explanations: 3:10 Fast dialog: 17:44 Andy: I got it! I got a confession. Diane: You got a confession out of that suspect? How did you do it? We’ve been after that guy for days. Andy: I put the pressure on and he buckled. Diane: Did you make threats? Andy: Of course I made threats. It’s an interrogation, not a tea party. Diane: The confession is no good if it’s coerced. Andy: I may have gone over the line a little, but who’s to know? Diane: He knows and any half-decent lawyer will make mincemeat out of that confession. He’ll get it thrown out of court in a heartbeat. Andy: I leaned on him a little hard, but it’s not like I put the screws on him. Diane: You have a lot to learn. Andy: Do you think I should go back in there and talk to him? Diane: Stay out of there. You’ve done enough damage. Rookies! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
