Coerced Confession

CINCINNATI – The Sixth Circuit ruled that two officers who conducted an interrogation of a brain-damaged inmate on suicide watch are not entitled to qualified immunity on civil rights claims brought by the wrongly convicted man who claims his confession to a rape and murder was coerced. 

A third officer, who was not directly involved in the interrogation or polygraph tests that led to the inmate’s confession, is entitled to immunity.
