When (Truthful) Alibi Evidence is Overlooked in Favour of (False) Eyewitness Evidence: Findings from the Innocence Project Case Files

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

As reported previously (Burke & El Sibaey, 2008) an examination of the original case files from the more than 200 post-conviction DNA exoneration cases in the U.S. and Canada revealed that in many cases, exculpatory alibi evidence was not followed up, not mentioned in subsequent court documents, nor discussed in the official case summaries. Current research is now focused on the circumstances under which (presumably truthful) alibis are ignored or not followed up when other (presumably false) evidence, such as eyewitness testimony, is presented; The former is considered ‘weak’ evidence while the latter is considered ‘strong’. This, despite the fact that both types of evidence are to be treated as ‘equal’ under the law.
