FBI admits forensic lab 'errors' against criminal suspects

The FBI on Sunday admitted “errors” spanning several years in evidence provided in court by its forensic lab to help secure criminal convictions, including in death penalty cases. The admission follows a report by the Inspector General’s Office (OIG) last July probing “irregularities” by the Federal Bureau of Investigation lab. The OIG’s report found that that the flawed forensics were used in at least 60 capital punishment cases, including three in which the defendants were put to death. Such statements are no longer being made by the FBI,” the statement said.
