Rick Cofer Explores Juvenile Crime Issues February 11, 2019

 

We hear a lot in the news about juvenile offenders who commit terrible crimes. It can be shocking to think about young people committing crimes, but sadly, juvenile crime is a reality in today’s world. Another issue, however, is that many juvenile offenders confess to crimes that they haven’t really committed. To an outsider, all of this may seem shocking and hard to understand, but experts like Rick Cofer; Austin, Texas’ Rick Cofer Law PLLC founder, attorney, know all about how the legal system works and the difficulties that young people are up against if they are arrested.

The Pressure on Juvenile Offenders

Yes, it can be difficult to understand why anyone would confess to a crime they didn’t commit.

Rick Cofer is an expert in this area of the law, however, and he has written extensively on the problem of juvenile confessions.

According to Rick Cofer, there is a sad history to the problem of juvenile criminal confessions. One of the most troubling instances of this kind of confession is the case of The Central Park Five, in 1989. In this case, five young men were arrested in the case of a woman jogger who was raped in Central Park. The young men (all minority members) were taken into custody, where they confessed to the rape under duress. It was later found, however, that another man (whose DNA matched the sample in the rape kit) was the actual rapist. Why did these young men confess to the crime? According to Cofer, it was a classic case of juveniles bowing to pressure from authority figures. Go Here for more information about Rick Coffer.

The Pressure of Authority

For adults, it can be easy to forget how difficult it is for young people to defy authority, especially when they are caught up in an arrest scenario that takes them far out of their personal safety zone. Many juveniles will bow to the pressure from police to confess just to get the situation resolved, hoping that they can then be returned to safety. All of this is why it is so important for juveniles to have full protection under the law, to avoid the problem of innocent people being wrongly convicted of crime.
