Subway11 - I think you are right. I saw a case on television in which a man was wrongly convicted of an attempted robbery.
The victim was showed the picture of the convicted man and told investigators that he was the one that pulled the gun on him despite the fact that he had told investigators that the suspect was 5’10” when the convicted man was actually 6’3”.
His wife was able to get him released because the actual perpetrator was 5’7” tall. I was amazed that someone could be wrongfully convicted like that, but even the victim made a mistake.
The jury was also told about the convicted man’s prior criminal history and although it did not have anything to do with the case at hand, the leading testimony tainted the jury and convicted an innocent man to life in prison.
