Flawed F.B.I Forensic Work May Have Led to Conviction of Innocent People

April 17, 2012 | 1 Comment ยป

Hundreds of defendants across the country may be entitled to retrial or retesting of evidence if not outright exoneration based on years of sloppy forensic work performed by F.B.I. crime labs. Prosecutors have known about the issues for years but failed to inform defendants even after the Justice Department began investigating the questionable lab work. The DOJ investigation of F.B.I. forensic work goes back to 1996 but critics suggest that the probe was intentionally limited and has failed to address the full scope of known issues.

The Washington Post has an extensive report on efforts to force the government’s hand in expanding the investigation and provide appropriate compensation to those that have suffered as a result of the faulty forensic work.
