NJ Jurors to be Warned About Witness ID Evidence

New Jersey jurors are going to be told to take eyewitness identifications of suspects with a grain of salt.

The state’s Supreme Court on Thursday unveiled new guidelines for what judges should tell jurors about the possible problems with evidence from police lineups.

The guidelines follow a ruling in August 2011 in which the court found the state’s previous standards did not do enough to prevent mistaken identifications, which can lead to wrongful convictions.

Jurors now will be told to consider how police run lineups.
