01 June 0 Comments A Sad Day in America Posted by admin in Mimi's Blog It is a sad day in America because the National Commission on Forensic Science has been terminated. This commission has helped overturn convictions based on faulty forensic science. Further, the commission has been helpful for DUI and Criminal Defense lawyers by exploring minimal qualifications to be able to be an analyst in reporting a forensic result and minimum requirements to ensure validity in forensic science. The elimination of this commission will serve to harm more than help those who have been accused of a crime, including a DUI. It will also harm DUI and Criminal Defense lawyers in being able to attack the validity of certain forensic “sciences” that are used against clients.Mimi Coffey is a nationally-renowned trial attorney, board-certified in DWI by the NCDD, who has been practicing for over 24 years and is an author of multiple DWI Defense textbooks and is a national and state-wide lecturer on the law.
