The Texas Forensic Science Commission is recommending a ban on bite-mark analysis in criminal cases due to the subjectivity and lack of reliability of this type of analysis. While the Commission cannot outright ban all bite-mark evidence, it would encourage judges to prohibit the use of bite-mark evidence in criminal trials. Such a move is unprecedented, and could lead to a domino effect where bite-mark evidence would be discouraged in other states. Opponents of the ban contend that bite-mark evidence helped convict infamous serial killer Ted Bundy.
