University of Mich. Innocence Clinic reveals primary reasons for wrongful convictions as: 
Eyewitness Misidentification ~ Eyewitness misidentification is the single greatest cause of wrongful convictions nationwide. 
Junk Science ~ Many forensic testing methods have been applied with little or no scientific validation and inadequate assessments of their significance or reliability.
False Confessions ~ Innocent defendants make incriminating statements, deliver outright confessions, or plead guilty. 
Government Misconduct ~ Government officials take steps to ensure that a defendant is convicted despite weak evidence or proof of innocence.
Lying Snitches ~ Particularly incentives for witnesses may not be disclosed to the jury, but statements may be the central evidence in convicting an innocent person.
Bad Lawyering ~ The failure of overworked lawyers to investigate, call witnesses, or prepare for trial has led to the conviction of innocent people.
