The cost of Austin crime lab failure reaches $6.5 – $14 million estimates

Image result for taxpayer costs

Regardless of the politicians assurances, this taxpayer cost will surely go up to  include whatever additional legal costs that occur over the propose next five years. Its 12 years worth of crime lab cases.

So far, no one has blamed the TX Forensic Science Commission’s role in bringing all this to light. Maybe because they did their job, initially over prosecutors’ objections.

California and all the other states could sure use this type of oversight. CA just wants to keep executing people.
