The Miami Herald found that at least 38 murder confessions were thrown out in Broward County courts by judges, juries, police or prosecutors. Suspects were jailed for confessions that incorrectly stated basic facts of a crime. Confessions were taken from suspects who asked for attorneys or asked to remain silent. Detectives forced confessions out of people under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Broward County detectives also took confessions from the mentally disabled, from minors, and from the homeless.
