Hello, my son was arrested recently for a serious crime which he as admitted to me that he did. I told him that he should get a lawyer and not confess because the state has to prove he did it anyway and they might not be able to. This was a theft case where their really isn't a lot of evidence. My son, who is mentally delayed, is worried because he confessed to our priest that he took the stuff and now thinks the priest might testify against him. But I thought that a priest could not be forced to testify against someone because of what they said in confession. Is that the law in Massachusetts? Thank you for your time.
