Oregon State Police Crime Labs

First one analyst, and now a second analyst’s work has been called into question, says the Oregonian.  “The current case involving the Bend analyst likely affects nearly 1,000 cases — most in Eastern Oregon — including 502 in Deschutes County.”  A district attorney commented “he was notified six months ago by state police about potential problems with evidence in six cases handled by a longtime analyst in Central Point. It appears that analyst no longer works for the state.  Between these two analysts, he said, ‘it tells me we have a significant problem in the Oregon State Police crime labs.'”
