Determining error in DNA match
False match probability (FMP) puts an error rate to a DNA match statistic. The FMP value is customized to case evidence. While the likelihood ratio (LR) number summarizes the probative value of evidence, FMP gives the chance of being wrong. TrueAllele calculates FMP to determine error in DNA match.
A trier of fact does not want to wrongly convict an innocent person. Most jurors do not know about Bayes theorem, mathematical probability, likelihood or likelihood ratios. But they do understand the chance of error, and they want to avoid making a mistake.
