DC Forensics Lab to Resume DNA Testing in January
Nine months after DNA testing was suspended at the District's independent crime lab, officials said evidence analysis will resume in January following a training and management overhaul.
An audit last April found serious flaws in the way the testing was conducted and Jenifer Smith, the new director of the Department of Forensic Sciences, said she found a lab in turmoil from significant mismanagement.
Smith has been on the job since July when she was appointed to the position by Mayor Muriel Bowser. When we talked to her in September, she was not afraid to criticize the way the lab was initially set up and operating in 2012.
