Plot Synopsis

This true crime series shows how innocent people have been convicted with dubious forensic techniques and tools such as touch DNA and cadaver dogs. EXHIBIT A premiered on Friday, June 28, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the entire four-episode first season. In the series opener, "Video Forensics," a Texas man is convicted of robbery when forensic experts see what they want to see in their analysis of store surveillance footage. Then, in "Blood Spatter," the limits of forensic science are exposed when flawed blood spatter evidence leads to the conviction of a Texas woman for the murder of her husband. Next, in "Cadaver Dogs," assumptions pass for facts when Detroit police misuse cadaver dogs to build a murder case against a man whose daughter has disappeared. In the season ender, "Touch DNA," an innocent man faces assault charges in Brooklyn thanks to statistical DNA testing that relies on deduction rather than proof.
