Forensic Toxicology Complexity Suggests More Care in Hiring Witnesses

The article explains that producing evidence through forensic science is not that simple. Lack of sufficient experience in handling different types of cases may yield fallible findings and lead to wrongful convictions (or acquittals).

The hired forensic toxicologist who will examine the evidence must have extensive knowledge and experience in handling urine, blood, and oral samples. Experience proves important, especially in cases that involve examination of bacteria and maggots from decomposing matter. Inexperienced toxicologists may not be comfortable handling such samples and their health might be at risk.
