False Positive is a 30-minute documentary, split into three episodes and produced by Vox Senior Producer Joss Fong, focusing on the conviction of Robert Lee Stinson. Stinson spent 23 years in a Wisconsin prison for murder after two forensic odontologists concluded that his teeth matched bite marks found on the body of the victim.

False Positive looks at the structural and cultural factors that have made the U.S. criminal justice system susceptible to unreliable forensic science, and that continue to impede progress toward more reliable methods today.

All he said was "I'm Sorry." Like do you seriously think that enough? He was literally put in jail for 23 years, yet for a crime you did bs. I hope you get a double amount of years in prison.

So what is the price tag that U.S set on this man on his compensation? What kind of bribe will bring his wrongfully spent time. Justice is served, did it tho?

God bless Mr Robert Stinson

They should drop a NUKE bomb in Wisconsin's and then start over!!!

The dentists statements were very horrible. They should be sued or something. They are talking in those papers and on the witness stand like they are very sure of what they are saying, like what they did was very accurate thats why Stinson got convicted.
Fuc I dropped My Spaghetti
Lol i love how theyre getting the actual killer to say sorry not to the woman he murdered but to the falsely convicted man. Hhhhahahahhahahh
Ossama Arvayani
Man, he wasted 23 years of his life on a prison for something didn't do. That's sooo f**k up

Did Robert Stinson become a Millionaire by suing the heck out of the government?
The one
Why can't they lock up those doctors and judge who wrongly convicted him,they should be at death row
pupqet
ok but poor pigs
Kris Guillen
I didn’t like that judge she didn’t seem remorseful at all
君rei
Jesus... convicted with no fair trial at the age of 20... all because two professors forcefully connected unproven scientific "evidence", out of what, maybe desperation? What became of those two odontologists, by the way? Hopefully regretting their careers. They were the main factors that propelled this whole debacle of allowing pseudoscience with no reliable error stats into law for two decades. I have an inkling that they probably knew they had nothing to prove themselves right, because you can't be a man of science for so long without acknowledging the stone cold fact of a simple tested theory and statistics.
Mervin Jia Ye Boey
update: he's to receive 7.5M in compensation.
Antonio DBZ
So did he sued them? I hope he did cuz those people stole 23 years of his life. They own him millions of dollars.

i hate those dentists

Robert Lee Stinson's trial shows how the judicial system lacks an effective filter to catch bad science before it's used to convict innocent people.
