Another California Crime Lab Analyst Charged


December 29, 2010

A former California crime lab analyst has been charged with taking drug samples from the crime lab he worked at. The analyst worked at the Central Valley Crime Lab in Ripon. The crime lab processed drug samples for California police agencies in Calaveras, Merced, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Toulumne Counties. As posted previously, crime lab analysts often times maintain breat testing machines and analyze blood in DUI / Drunk Driving cases. They also testify in court on a regular basis in DUI / Drunk Driving cases as an expert for the prosecution. I’m quite sure that every case this crime lab analyst was involved with will now be looked at again. Authorities concluded he was taking the drugs when it was discovered that samples he worked on weighed less than when the drugs were checked in.
