Crime labs are an important part of the legal process. Crime lab personnel deal closely with evidence, analyzing and compiling the data. Field analysts are on the crime scene, collecting evidence; and laboratory analysts run all the necessary tests on it.
Erroneous or unreliable results can have terrible consequences — and the wrong person could be accused. The attorneys at Foley Griffin understand this very well. This is why Foley Griffin was one of the first law firms in Nassau County to bring to light the Nassau County crime lab case. Nearly 9,000 drug cases dating to late 2007 had to be reviewed, after a spot check of nine cases revealed that six of them had been inaccurately analyzed.
