Published by Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association



Summary
The number of changes in sciences over the past few years, especially those associated with criminal trials, has exploded. Judges who have, for years, admitted bitemark and hair microscopy evidence are now being faced with the battle between stare decisis and scientific progress. The responsibility of teaching the Court what the science is, why it is better, and why evidence should be admitted where it previously wasn’t or vice versa, such that it can perform its gatekeeping function, falls to defense counsel. Rules 702 and 705 deal not only with scientific evidence but also knowledge of “technical, or other specialized knowledge,” if it will be helpful to the jury. Many times, we aren’t able to exclude this type of evidence but we must be prepared to explain how the testimony must be restricted and how the jury must be instructed. This program features presentations by both scientists and trial attorneys on topics as varied as DNA and crime scene reconstruction. Divergent views on the utility of some of the disciplines will be represented at the program. Trial attorneys must refresh themselves on forensics regularly or stare decisis will prevail when it shouldn’t!
