Summary:
The value of eyewitness accounts in a criminal case can best be made clear by looking at trials where there is none: how might the O.J. Simpson verdict have been affected someone had seen the killing? The power of eyewitnesses simply cannot be denied. But their accuracy certainly can. Through intense examination of cases where eyewitness testimony has been proved false, AMERICAN JUSTICE sheds new light on this important issue. Howard Haupt sued the Las Vegas police department for leading witnesses to select him as the suspect in a kidnapping he was cleared of. Several tellers who had stood face to face with the perpetrator wrongly identified Shaun Deckinga as a bank robber. In these and other cases, the value of eyewitness testimony is called into question. Hear from legal experts and psychologists why eyewitness accounts can be so unreliable, and explore the frequent allegations that the police lead witnesses to select the person they already suspect of the crime.
