Memory conformity during co-witness discussions: Issues and considerations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Criminal investigations often rely upon eyewitnesses to help drive investigations forward and convict offenders. Witnesses can assist investigators by identifying suspects, through identification parades; and by providing detailed accounts about the incident, through their statement. However, research suggests that witnesses will not always produce reliable evidence. Witness inaccuracies can be due to various dispositional and circumstantial factors, however for the purpose of the current discussion, the author focuses on the malleability on the suggestibility of eyewitnesses during co-witness discussions.
