    Wiki had it a little wrong. Based on my research, mis-ID is the 2nd leading cause of wrongful convictions. The first is snitches.

    Saucy, I’ve been under the impression for quite a while that bad IDs were number one. What’s your source on that?

    The Innocence Project also agrees with Wikipedia, as do the Justice Project and the high court of New Jersey (State v. Delgado, 188 N.J. 48, 60 (2006) (“Misidentification is widely recognized as the single greatest cause of wrongful convictions in this country.”))
