Tonight at ten, NewsChannel 11's Investigative Reporter Nicole Pesecky puts your ID skills to the test. We wanted to see how accurate eyewitness identification really is, so we teamed up with the Texas Tech Law School to conduct an experimental purse snatching.
Seventy-five law students witnessed the crime with their own two eyes. But how many could actually pick out the thief in a line up? That's what we wanted to find out. We asked the students to write down everything they could remember about the crime and the suspect. We went to the Sheriff's Office to have the professionals put together a six person line up including our thief. So how did these future lawyers do? Find out tonight on NewsChannel 11 at 10.
In the meantime, you can also take the test. Click on the link above to watch the video. In all fairness, we ask that you watch it only once. Then look at the line up above and cast your vote on who you think is the purse snatcher in our inactive poll below.
