A scientifically sound and empirically supported measure which identifies twelve of the most common patterns of deception among offenders who are engaging in denial of their sex offenses. Through the assistance of law enforcement agencies across the United States, this primary group has been compared statistically with a group of falsely accused individuals – that is, persons accused of a sexual offense who have been cleared by solid evidence such as polygraph data, DNA evidence, confessions of another offender or offenders, etc. The presentation introduces the instrument and shows various clips from actual interviews and interrogations to demonstrate the techniques of denial and deception.
