2016-2017 Mock Trial Case Final Version with 2/7/2017 edits 67 AFFIDAVIT OF RANDY CORBETT 1. My name is Randy Corbett. I am a Clinical Psychologist and expert in police investigative techniques. I have been in practice for 15 years, and a Professor of Clinical Psychology in a joint program between CUNY Graduate Center and John Jay College of Criminal Justice for the last ten years. Before that, I was a police officer for ten years with the New York City Police Departm ent (“NYPD”), where I was trained in and developed expertise on police investigative techniques. 2. Toward the end of my tenure with the NYPD, I became concerned about the application of confrontational investigative techniques on impressionable young people.

I received my Ph.D. in psychology from the State University of New York at Albany in 1999. I am Board Certified in Clinical Psychology with Special Qualification in Developmental Psychology. 4.

One of my doctoral students was Lee Trimble, who has since earned a Ph. D.

I tried my best to guide Trimble, but Trimble insisted on finding a new advisor. 6. As a service to my former profession, I often lead training academies where the fundamentals of good police work are covered. I have also taught a Behavioral Analysis course at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. I am paid for these trainings at the rate of $3500 per course. 7. I have been retained as an expert witness 24 times in my career. At first, these were roughly evenly divided between plaintiff/prosecution and defense, but now the vast majority of my

I have been Trimble’s adversary in court on about five occasions. 8. Although there is no formal diagnosis in the DHA-5 (the official guidebook of mental health diagnoses), it is an acknowledged psychological phenomenon that sometimes, when a parent figure is missing in a young person’s life, the young person will gravitate towar d another person or persons whom the young person perceives as an authority figure to “fill the void.” 9. It is also known that people may attach to an authority figure and freely volunteer information about actual or perceived wrongdoing on the part of themselves or another, even if the information isn’t necessarily true. 10. I first became involved in this case at the request of the plaintiff after the judgment of conviction

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
