Any trial attorney will have numerous stories of cases when one witness describes events differently from the next witness. In fact, inconsistent testimony is expected and any trial attorney will prepare for trial knowing a jury will hear different versions of events. This may sound obvious to non-lawyers, but many people expect that eyewitness testimony is the "best" evidence and is very persuasive to jurors.
However, more and more research is exposing the flaws inherent with eyewitness testimony. In fact, most DNA-based exonerations freed suspects whose convictions were largely based upon eyewitness testimony.
