Miranda Procedure Checklist Gregory DeClue Sarasota, FL [email protected] http://gregdeclue.myakkatech.com.
When police advise a suspect of his rights fairly,and he understands his rights, and he waives his rights,and he voluntarily confesses,and he is convicted,and he really was guilty,that’s a good thing.
“When … probative force of evidence depends on circumstances in which it was obtained … indications of conscientious police work will enhance probative force and slovenly work will diminish it.”
The Oral Miranda Warning Checklist was presented by Gregory DeClue at the “first ever Conference on Interrogations and Confessions … at the University of Texas at El Paso (September 27-29, 2007). The event was supported by a Conferences Grant Award from the American Psychological Association Science Directorate.” See http://www.apa.org/science/about/psa/2007/10/interrogation-conf.aspx. It was published in a peer-reviewed journal as DeClue, G. (2007). Oral Miranda warnings: A checklist and a model presentation. Journal of Psychiatry and Law, 35, 421-441. It is included in a book chapter: DeClue, G. (2010). Oral Miranda warnings: A checklist and a model presentation. In G. D. Lassiter & C. A. Meissner, Police interrogations and false confessions: Current research, practice, and policy recommendations, pp. 179-190. Washington, D.C.: American Psychological Association. That book was awarded the 2009-2010 Book Award from the American Psychology-Law Society, and the 2010 Prose Award from American Publishers.
