NACDL News: NACDL Welcomes Forensics Initiatives Announced by Deputy Attorney General Sally Q. Yates

Deputy Attorney General Sally Q. Yates delivered important remarks on Feb. 24, 2016, during the 68th Annual Scientific Meeting hosted by the American Academy of Forensic Science in Las Vegas, Nev. In those remarks, there is a clear recognition of the importance of the integrity and reliability of that which is admitted as forensic science in criminal trials in America. Forensic science “brings all of us closer to the truth — whether it’s identifying the perpetrator of a crime or clearing the innocent,” Yates said.
