Default Leading expert explains why you would falsely confess

Good article/video.

Would you confess to a crime you did not commit?
Many people would respond instantaneously with a firm, "No." But they do and often, says Saul Kassin, one of the country’s leading experts on false confessions.
“Your belief that you would never confess to a crime you didn't commit is your frame of reference for evaluating others. And it's a fair frame of reference. We do it all the time,” Kassin said in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt.
