Kelsey Henderson, Criminology and Criminal Justice faculty, co-presented the study "Evaluating the Totality of Confession Evidence" at the American Psychology-Law Society annual conference, in Memphis, Tenn. The study examined if jurors were sensitive to the source (i.e., interrogation or suspect) and consistency of information in evaluating confession evidence. Henderson was also a team member of the conference’s external-focused task force. One of the outcomes of this initiative was over 20 psychologists and criminologists going out to local Memphis high schools to present and chat with students about the field of psychology and law.
