Present the Defendant's Case

This questionnaire is for use with:

Instructions.  When completed, the following questionnaire will be useful in determining whether or not forensic tests can be applied to the defendant's case.

This questionnaire covers defendants who have been falsely accused and wrongfully convicted of criminal events, and defendants who have been wrongfully accused and punished for non-criminal acts of which the defendant is innocent.  

If one of the above forensic tests can be used, the questionnaire might then serve as a guide to initiate case investigation.  

If you do not have information about specific questions, please fill in the blank with one of the following:

21. Name, address, phone number, and email address of alibi witness(es):










22. Why was the crime or non-criminal act / event committed?  What is the most plausible explanation for the crime or non-criminal act / event, other than that the defendant committed it?  What evidence is there of this?  Are there alternative suspects and who are they?






23. Are there witnesses who lied at the trial or during the meeting of the organization's officials in order to implicate the defendant?  If so, please give names, phone numbers, and addresses if known.









24. Brain Fingerprinting, DNA, and fingerprint evidence assist investigators to determine if a suspect was at the scene of the crime or non-criminal event.  They do not directly indicate or detect guilt, innocence, lying, or truth telling.  


        In the case of Brain Fingerprinting, to exonerate an innocent defendant, we need details about the crime or non-criminal act / event that the perpetrator would know, but the innocent defendant does not know.  Brain Fingerprinting can show scientifically that an innocent defendant does not have these details about the crime stored in his brain.  


        What is needed is information that the perpetrator would have encountered while committing the crime or the non-criminal act, but the innocent defendant has never been told during the course of the investigation and trial -- so the real perpetrator would know the information, but the innocent defendant does not.  


        Do you know of any details in any way related to the crime or non-criminal act / event, the crime scene or place in which the event occurred, or the events surrounding the crime or non criminal act that the innocent defendant does not or may not know?  


    Do you know if DNA and fingerprints are available in this case and where the evidence is stored / secured?  If so, please describe in detail.














25. What document and / or who would be the best source(s) that you know of to obtain details about the crime or non-criminal act / event that the defendant may not know?

26. Are funds available to pay for Brain Fingerprinting Testing if it is determined that the Brain Fingerprinting Test can be used to test the defendant?  Are funds available to pay for DNA and fingerprinting tests?  Please name and give contact information of the source of funds?
