Texas - A bill authored by local Attorney Jeff Blackburn has passed the Texas Senate.
The eyewitness ID bill would require Texas law enforcement agencies to use a stricter more uniform method in using eyewitness identification.
It was one of several measures passed related to improving the criminal justice system.
Nearly 75% of wrongful convictions have been due to mistaken eyewitness identification.
Another provision attached to a separate bill would expand post-conviction DNA testing.
