This is why prosecutions based solely on witness testimony without further evidence are so scary. I know I've stood there sure that the store security guy is lieing. Even worse is when your client's ex-girlfriend, whom he caught cheating and slapped the night before she accused him of [fill in the blank], gets on the stand ready and willing to say anything to convict your client. And the amount of witness collusion is amazing. Unless they slip up so that you can impeach them there's not a whole lot you can do about it.
