DNA exoneration shows that mistaken identification is one of the primary causes of convictions of the innocent. The U.S. Supreme Court has not revised or amended its ruling on suggestive eyewitness identification procedures (Neil v.Biggers, 1977) for over 30 years. Scientific inquires into eyewitness identification, however, have continued to develop, revealing more insight into the unreliable nature of eyewitness identification. The efficacy of Biggers as a safeguard against unreliable identification will be discussed. It will be argued that safeguards intended by the Court may be mislead jurors into believing eyewitness are reliable.
The Alumni Association is pleased to host quarterly lunch & learn events where alumni can gather to network and exchange business cards while also having the opportunity to hear from one of UAHuntsville's accomplished faculty members on recent research studies and findings.
