Bulletin; Jereme Jermaine Carter: Illinois; First-degree murder; Judge has authorized funding of a defence expert witness who has extensive knowledge of the Reid Technique of interrogation. Defence lawyer argued that the technique uses "physiological tactics" to elicit a response, and that "the use of such tactics would affect Carter’s statements during the interrogation process and as such, those statements should be thrown out."

GIST:  "A Monmouth man facing first-degree murder charges from the August 2012 shooting death of Terrell Allen will soon have an additional witness in his defense. Jereme Jermaine Carter, 32, appeared in Knox County Circuit Court Wednesday morning with his attorney, Steven Glasgow, to discuss court funding for the payment of attorney fees, funding for a private investigator and the funding of a expert witness.Judge Paul Mangieri approved the first two motions without contest, leaving Glasgow to convince the court a expert witness was necessary. Having been utilized by the National Organization of Criminal Defense Lawyers for multiple cases in the past, Glasgow explained the witness has an extensive knowledge of the “Reid technique” of interrogation, which he stated was used in interrogations of Carter by the Galesburg Police Department. The Reid technique relies on the “use of physiological tactics to elicit a response,” Glasgow said, adding that the use of such tactics would affect Carter’s statements during the interrogation process and as such, those statements should be thrown out. Glasgow further stated the expert witness has been used in other instances regarding the Reid method and that “this guy knows his stuff.” The costs of utilizing the witness were not to exceed $4,000.".........Carter is being held in the Knox County jail on $1 million bond scheduled for a pretrial conference at 9 a.m. July 7."
