Daily Journal Quotes Aaron Murphy on Videotaped Interrogations

Akin Gump litigation partner Aaron Murphy was quoted by Daily Journal for its article “Defense attorneys say government's videotaped interrogation policy falls short,” regarding a U.S. Department of Justice announcement in May 2014 requesting that federal law enforcement agents videotape interrogations.

Murphy noted, “There are strategies that are routinely employed in law enforcement that I think if a lot of jurors actually saw a videotape of what some of this stuff looked like, they might have some real questions about whether a confession was voluntary—if somebody meant what they said or if they were just finally relenting after incessant questioning.”
