If you are innocent, three decades in prison is a long time to think about the people who put you there.
Keith Allen Harward had a lot bottled up, and he let it loose Monday at the largest annual gathering of its kind in the world, the 69th annual meeting of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.
“I’m not here to make any friends,” began Harward, who was sent behind bars for rape and murder largely on the erroneous testimony of two forensic dentists, known as forensic odontologists.
At a conference workshop Monday with a number of forensic dentists listening, Harward, his voice rising, said, “This stuff is all crap. It’s bogus. This bite mark stuff is bogus. Why even continue with it? It just doesn’t make sense."
