COURT MARTIAL confession defense in Korea
You may have confessed, but that doesn’t make you guilty in a court of law
You’re called in for questioning about a case. Little do you know
that you’re law enforcement’s lead suspect.
And they don’t suspect you of being innocent. You’re told that your cooperation is appreciated and you’ll
be out in no time. What you don’t realize is that sooner or later—whether
through stress or frustration—you’re going to be trapped by
your own words. Something minor at first, but the longer you spend cooperating
with law enforcement (“just a few more questions,” “just
a quick polygraph test”) the likelier it is that you’ll be
tricked into making a confession.
If you’ve made a confession while in the custody of law enforcement,
you need to understand two things. First, you’re not the first person
to make a false confession. And second, you’re not guilty of a crime
unless and until a jury convicts you at your court martial. A trial where
a confession is involved isn’t an easy win for the defense. It takes
skill, experience, and a defense team with a penchant for winning tough cases.
A winning strategy for dealing with confessions
Bilecki & Tipon understands what it takes to win cases where a confession
is made. Our first course of action is to eliminate the confession before
it’s admitted into evidence to begin with. This could mean performing
our own investigation into law enforcement’s interrogation techniques.
It could also include watching the interrogation video, listening to the
audio, and reading over signed documents, all in a bid to determine whether
the confession was made lawfully—without the service member being
coerced or misled.
Even if a confession does get admitted into evidence, it isn’t the
end of the trial. Bilecki & Tipon will attempt to convince the jury
that the confession was made under extreme circumstances, or could’ve
been done to protect another service member. Some options include cross-examining
law enforcement agents that performed the interrogation, or, if we feel
we have strong evidence and testimony, we can create enough reasonable
doubt in the jury to secure a not guilty verdict in court.
