Moreover, we reference suggestive techniques that may also lead to erroneous eyewitness accounts. The implications discussed within this paper seek to recognize psychological influences that may cause erroneous eyewitness testimony, thus leading to wrongful convictions. Furthermore, in highlighting the influences that positively correlate with inaccurate eyewitness accounts, it is our aim to suggest future research designs and programs that may aid in limiting inaccurate eyewitness testimony. Psychological Components to Eyewitness Fallibility: Erroneous Eyewitness Testimony Introduction Eyewitness accounts have aided the criminal justice system in locking up offenders in criminal proceedings for decades, yet there are also several documented cases in which the testimony of eyewitnesses actually resulted in wrongful convictions.
