Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. Requires a peace officer who interrogates a person suspected of committing a capital offense to videotape the interrogation of the suspect. Provides that the videotape is admissible in court in a prosecution of the suspect for a capital offense if the suspect confesses to the capital offense or otherwise makes an admission that may be used in a prosecution of the suspect for the capital offense and if the suspect recants his or her confession or contradicts any admission made to a peace officer. Provides that the failure to videotape the interrogation of the suspect of the capital offense renders any confession or admission made by the suspect inadmissible in court. Effective immediately.
