Is that an MP3 player in your pocket or are you just happy to bust me for lying on the witness stand?

neoplayer A teen being investigated in connection with a murder secretly used the MP3 player in his pocket to record an interrogation that the detective working the case swore under oath never took place.

I’ve always wondered whether or not detectives searched suspects before locking themselves in an interrogation room. You’d think they’d at least check for weapons but who knows, maybe finding an MP3 player wouldn’t arouse any suspicion.

Whatever the case, this kid not only got himself a free pass on the freedom train but also ended up getting the detective in question charged with 12 counts of first-degree perjury.
