San Diego Releases Inmates Based On Faulty Lab Results

January 11, 2010

As I blogged about a while back, faulty lab results were discovered in toxicology reports on blood and urine tests from a private company contracted with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

Toxicology labs routine test for alcohol and drugs in DUI / Drunk Driving cases. The county originally thought only a few cases may be affected.

However, officials ordered a review of 675 cases dating from March, 2009 through December, 2009. So far, 11 people have been released from Vista jail as a result of the review. Hundreds of more cases are still under review. The private lab notified the Sheriff’s department last summer as a result of an inexperienced lab worker.

The San Diego Sheriff’s Department no longer uses the services of the private lab. It has yet to be determined how many DUI / Drunk Driving cases have been affected.
