#Forensic Fiction: A DA’s desperate attempt to save her case in #NewJersey #DNA #exoneration

News Release: Go to the link to read a New Jersey DA’s ridiculous statement saying the DNA from a bitemark injury (vacating a wrongful conviction) should NOT be used to “impune the reliability” of an ABFO bitemark expert and his “methods” which both helped convict this innocent man in original trial. The DA says “there is no authority” preventing use of the bitemark pattern in a potential new trial. She’s a scientific idiot and is not telling the truth to the court. The NAS report in 2009 informed the US Congress that bitemarks are unreliable for matching to a suspects teeth.

Now go the this link.
