The House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on SB 82, the bill that passed the Senate Judiciary Committee last month and would improve eyewitness identification procedures in West Virginia. Eyewitness misidentification has led to scores of wrongful convictions nationwide, including several in West Virginia.
The reforms in SB 82 have been proven to reduce the possibility for errors that lead to wrongful convictions. The hearing is being held at 5:30 p.m. in room 410M. Rebecca Brown, Policy Analyst at the Innocence Project, will testify.
