  Eyewitness identification can be useful in the initial stages of an investigation to help narrow down the suspect pool. But sentencing a person to serve prison time or even worse death, based purely on eyewitness testimony in my opinion, is just plain wrong. Forensic science is by far more reliable than any eyewitness can be. Evaluating Eyewitness Identification Procedures Using ROC Analysis To date, the Innocence Project has used DNA evidence to exonerate over innocent people. Faulty eyewitness evidence played a significant role in nearly 75% of these wrongful convictions. As a result, eyewitness memory researchers have developed new lineup procedures.

Eyewitness identification can occur in several formats: a showup, live lineups, or a photo lineup. Showups —where a suspect is apprehended and shown “live” and in-person to a witness, close in time to the event—have been demonstrated to have higher percentages of both correct and incorrect identifications as compared to lineups. An in-court eyewitness identification of a perpetrator is incredibly powerful to a jury. In fact, with the exception of DNA evidence, nothing can be more damning for a defendant than a witness telling the jury that the defendant was at the scene and participated in the crime. But sometimes, a witness’s identification can be mistaken.
