"Well your honour, certainly not appropriate in this case to suggest that nobody falsely confesses or in any case, because we know that to be factually untrue, in fact, we have an Amicus Brief, exactly to that effect, establishing, that false confessions happen under circumstances just like this, to kids just like Brendan they’re textured, they can be textured with detail, there are examples in the Amicus Brief of cases like the Central Park Five other famous cases where young defendants gave interlocking detailed confessions that sounded true that were later proven false."

- Laura Nirider Lead Counsel for Brendan Dassey 7th Circuit Court February 14th 2017
