Jerry A. Lewis pt3 - Getting a Confession


In part 3 of the series, Meg sits with Jerry Lewis, an expert in Statement Analysis.  Jerry was one of the first detectives in the United States to be trained in this technique, having analyzed thousands of statements since that time.  He identified the killer of Megan Kanka (Megan’s Law) from a statement read to him over the phone after the man had been cleared as a suspect.  He has been teaching Statement Analysis since 1984 and regularly consults with other law enforcement agencies on serious and complex investigations.  He has conducted interviews for every type of crime and has elicited more than 50 murder confessions.
