Man found innocent after 22 years of prison

It may be hard to think of innocent people being convicted of crimes they did not commit. The entire justice system is built around the belief that criminals are found guilty of crimes, while innocent people will be set free. Those who did not actually commit a crime should feel rest assured that the justice system will do its job to prove their innocence. Sadly, cases do not always work out this way and those who are innocent are sometimes found guilty. 

Limitations of eyewitness identification

Eyewitness identification is a tool often used by law enforcement to help identify a suspect of a crime. Departments may use an eyewitness lineup or a photograph lineup to ask witnesses who they believe committed the crime. Yet, a multitude of studies show that this form of identification may not always provide accurate and reliable results. In some cases, eyewitness identification may contribute to the wrongful conviction of an innocent person.
