Mona’s Diary 6/15/18: Coerced Statement

In a letter received on June 15th, 2018, Mona reported the following about the day of her arrest back in 2010:

“I was being transported to the jail by investigators in Houston (after days of keeping me from going to my house). Once we got to the jail intake, they took me to Bentaub Hospital in Huston, Texas instead, where I was given Benadryl for pain because I was spitting up blood (I hadn’t eaten and had been drinking prior to the couple of days they had me in their interrogation room).”

“Then, the same investigators took me back to the station to coerce a statement out of me. The he tape recording the interrogation malfunctioned during the end of the session. That’s what they said. I don’t remember the last moments in the interview room. I didn’t confess to anything. I had actually fallen asleep due to the effects of the Benadryl and lack of sleep.”
