Prof. Timothy O'Neill Says NYPD Starting to Show Progress on Recording Criminal Confessions

Posted November 13, 2012 by

Nov. 9 - Chicago Daily Law Bulletin

On April 19, 1989, a woman jogger was found raped and beaten in New York's Central Park. Within 48 hours, police obtained confessions from five teens ranging in age from 14 to 16. These confessions formed the heart of the prosecution's case, since the victim could not identify anyone and no forensic evidence linked the five defendants to the crime. The confessions were found admissible and all five defendants were convicted and sentenced to long prison terms.

Prof. Steven Schwinn Discusses Comparative Access to Justice for I-CONnect

Posted November 13, 2012 by

Nov. 10 - I-CONnect

Access to justice is one of the more widely recognized privileges in constitutional law and international human rights today. All of the most progressive and contemporary constitutions and human rights instruments recognize some form of it. The South Africans, the Germans, the Indians, the Canadians, and many others all grant a specific right of access to the courts to protect basic human rights, or authorize an individual to file a basic human rights complaint in a constitutional court, or both. And the Universal Declaration and every regional human rights instrument recognize either a right to access the courts for a violation of basic human rights, the right to a remedy, or both. But access to justice is conspicuously absent from the United States Constitution. The document fails to mention it even once.

Prof. Steven Schwinn on Chicago Public Media's 'The Morning Shift' after the 2012 Election

Posted November 9, 2012 by

Nov. 7 - WBEZ

"There were efforts to limit early voting in certain states; efforts to limit third party's abilities to register voters in Florida, that was overturned by the courts. I hope the lesson for both parties is that these kinds of cynical efforts to drive down the vote are not going to work in future elections. If we're going to look at electoral processes, with concern about integrity for the vote, we'll look honestly at the way we vote and try to bring new equipment, new opportunities, try to reduce the voting lines; do some things that are party neutral to enhance people's ability to vote, not depress people's vote."
