Can We Trust HPD Crime Lab Test Results?
Years after many have been wrongly convicted of various crimes, DNA samples are being retested. As seen in the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Police Department Crime Lab’s test results have been proven inaccurate one too many times.
For instance, George Rodriguez was wrongly convicted and sentenced to 17 years in jail for a sexual assault crime he did not commit. According to the Houston Chronicle, “a crime lab employee falsely testified during Rodriguez’s criminal trial that genetic evidence linked him to the attack.”
