Ohio Innocence Project – SB77 Compliance Research Project

In Ohio, Senate Bill 77 was passed by the legislature (2010) to protect against eyewitness misidentification and false confessions. This legislation incorporated evidence-based best practices agencies are to follow when conducting custodial interrogations and live and photographic lineups. The present study focuses on documenting how lineups and interrogations are being conducted and the extent to which agencies are complying with the requirements of Senate Bill 77.
