More on the CSI myth in forensic science

The case described in the first link is Gerard Richardson, not Henderson. I have written past articles on his conviction aided via a small cadre of bitemark experts. The second link is today’s op-ed from the Huff Post about similar issues of overstated or outright junk opines. The American Academy of Forensic Sciences still maintains its veneer as a pinnacle of “forensic truth” despite some members getting a free pass for their faulty representations in court. Faulty forensics contributes to nearly 50% of the Innocence Projects’ exonerations.
