EQUAL JUSTICE DEMANDS SOUND SCIENCE
Advancements in technology and testing have revolutionized the resources available to investigators, prosecutors, and defense counsel. However, the misuse and misconceptions surrounding these advances can have dire consequences within the criminal justice system.
