State v. Long

In State v. Long, 721 P.2d 483, 490 (Utah 1986) the Court warned that "research has convincingly demonstrated the weaknesses inherent in eyewitness identification[; however,] jurors are, for the most part, unaware of these problems." The Long instruction itself, while better than no education at all, can only give the jury general information, which itself only comes after all the evidence is in.
