Forensics: Dentist Board certified by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences has opinion rejected by US judge and Prosecutor

The US based AAFS still allows these dentists to teach bitemark identification at its annual convention. Many of these dentists have wrongful convictions on their records. Some of them refuse to release their historical records for new review. This dental board destroyed much of its archives before the Innocence Project was given access via a lawsuit.

    from Art Burns. Hi Uncle Michael,
    One last time- since 1984”
    Did you ever find out who it was from the Am Journal of Foren Sciences that “reviewed” formally prepublication,Rawsons infamous “individuality” article by Yfantis, Sperber, Herschaft et al????? Why is it no one knows and no one cares-yet if that publication had been held up or rejected we would not now have our debacle. I even asked at a section business meeting and asked our journal staff-
    Nothing! Best art

      Hi Art
      That article was reviewed by NIST last fall for an OSAC meeting. The old guard odonts were shocked to hear tht the scientists considered Rawsons paper to b a literary and research dud.
