People v. King, 2018 IL App (2d) 151112 (August). Episode 530 (Duration 16:26)
State’s expert witness who came in to plug the holes in their case got a little carried away.
As far as Illinois evidence is concerned, there are two heavily litigated issues occurring throughout Illinois criminal courts. With confessions the big question is whether or not the police coerced the confession.

If you are an Illinois criminal litigator you have to also hunt down the spattering of cases dealing with eyewitness identification, expert witness, prior inconsistent statements and much much more.
