Interviewing Juvenile Suspects: Are Interrogations Reliable?

A session at When Words Matter

Monday 29th July, 2013

3:00pm to 5:00pm (EST)

This presentation will provide a multidisciplinary approach to the problem of juveniles’ abilities to provide reliable information during interrogations about suspected crimes. A prosecutor and a forensic psychologist will consider whether juveniles should be afforded the same developmentally-sensitive interview practices as suspected victims. We will look at whether juveniles can understand the Miranda warning and investigation questions. The presentation will also examine juveniles’ abilities in light of research on brain and
psychosocial development.
