Contribution to Book
Forensic Science Evidence and Miscarriages of Justice
Advances in Forensic Human Identification (2014)
  • Hon. Donald E. Shelton, Eastern Michigan University

Discusses miscarriages of justice in forensic human identification, debating the weaknesses in seemingly reliable forensic evidence types, using the DNA "gold standard" as an illustration of the difficulties that arise when evidence is misinterpreted. The dialogue relates to flawed evidence being admitted in legal proceedings and the resultant damage to the justice system.
