Q: Attorney Tully, I have been watching the series Making a Murderer. Do you think something like that can happen in criminal law today?
A: Yes I do. Steve Avery was convicted of rape and spent 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. The evidence against him was the 100% certainty of the eyewitness victim of the rape. She was a very respected, educated member of the community. Total believability. But it turned out her identification was mistaken. Eyewitness identification is the least reliable form of evidence in the law. Call me if you have a pending criminal case.
