On today's Felony Friday show Professor Erin Murphy joins John Odermatt for an educational and fascinating look into the world of forensic DNA. Most people view forensic DNA analysis as a fool proof science. However, there is a dark side to forensic DNA and Erin Murphy is helping to expose failures and limitation with the use of forensic DNA as evidence.
Erin is a Professor of Law at NYU and she came to NYU after spending five years at UC Berkeley School of Law. Erin received her JD from Harvard Law School, and spent five years as an attorney with the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia. At NYU, her research focuses on technology and forensic evidence in the criminal justice system. She is a nationally recognized expert in forensic DNA typing, and her work has been cited multiple times by the Supreme Court. Her new book, which was released last fall, is called Inside the Cell: The Dark Side of Forensic DNA.
