Sarah Marshall and Josie Duffy Rice discuss the role of unreliable scientific evidence in the criminal justice system in the Feb. 20, 2022 edition of Marshall’s “You’re Wrong About” podcast. The episode is available here.
The podcast looks at several types of evidence including blood spatter and bitemark evidence. While many attorneys are familiar with the problems with these forensic fields, the podcast has some interesting insight into how a general audience might evaluate these and other types of forensic evidence. The program is about one hour long and may help attorneys think about with how to communicate with jurors about forensic evidence. They had some interesting insight into accuracy of detection dogs, eyewitness identification, breathalyzer and many other types of evidence.
