impact of false confessions

Discuss the case United States v. Russell, 411 U.S. 423 (1973)

and be sure to include the following:  What were the facts behind the illegal search, seizure or arrest?  What constitutional amendment was violated?  Did the Court agree to the exclusion of the evidence obtained from the illegal search?  What was the Court’s rationale?  Please remember to cite to the Court case.

Why do innocent people confess to crimes they did not commit?  You must cite to at least 3 reasons, with specific cites from the cases Watts v. Indiana, 338 U.S. 49 (1949), Crooker v. California, 357 U.S. 433 (1958), and Spano v New York, 360 U.S. 315 (1959)
