According to the Florida Senate, eyewitness misidentification has been cited as the single greatest cause of all wrongful conviction in the State of Florida –accounting for more almost seventy-five percent (75%) of convicting that were later overturned.

While the Florida legislature is fully aware of the problem in eyewitness identifications, if passed, Senate Bill 643 will be the first bill that addresses the proper procedure for conducting live line-ups and photographic identifications.

If passed, Senate Bill 643 will take effect this year, October 1, 2017.
