Eyewitness Errors Cause Huge # Of Wrongful Convictions
"In the past 20 years, 242 people have been exonerated by DNA testing.
Approximately 75 percent of them were wrongfully convicted due to some type of mistaken identification on the part of eyewitnesses, said Stephen Saloom, policy director of the Innocence Project, a group that uses DNA evidence to free wrongfully convicted prisoners."
If jurors can't trust an eyewitness to be right, how can jurors possible trust their ability to judge behavioral evidence (cauldron stirring)?
