False Positive is a 30-minute documentary, split into three parts, focusing on the conviction of Robert Lee Stinson. 

Stinson was wrongly convicted of murder on the basis of forensic bite mark evidence. Through his arrest, trial, and exoneration, Vox producer Joss Fong explains the structural flaws that make the US criminal justice system vulnerable to bad science.
