1. Burke, Tara. and El-Sibaey, Sami. "The Use and Misuse of Alibi Information in Wrongful Convictions: A Review of Case Files from the Innocence Project." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society, Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, Jacksonville, FL, <Not Available>. 2019-10-16 <>
Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: The present research examines the original case files from the more than 200 post-conviction DNA exoneration cases in the U.S. and Canada. A careful examination of these cases files, and the summary coding sheets that accompany them, reveals that in many cases alibi evidence was not followed up nor was it mentioned in subsequent court documents, or even in the case summaries; this makes it doubly difficult for psychologist and attorneys alike to fully explore (and generate accurate data of) the factors leading to wrongful convictions. The initial results of the ‘recoding’ of these files will be presented.
