Defense Attorneys Say Government's Videotaped Interrogation Policy Falls Short
Jul.23.2014 — The Daily Journal
Los Angeles-based White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group partner, Janet Levine, speaks to The Daily Journal about the Justice Department's recent announcement requesting federal law enforcement agents videotape their interrogations. "I think it takes away a defense tool, which was to attack the credibility of the agents through their failure to use modern equipment and statements that might be less than accurate," said Levine. "On the other hand, in some cases it keeps law enforcement in line from exaggerating what was said in a statement."
