Frank Green of the Richmond-Times-Dispatch describes in this story how “A review of old blood-typing cases prompted by the recent exoneration of a man who spent 33 years in prison for a murder he did not commit won the blessing of the Virginia Forensic Science Board on Wednesday.” This pilot investigation will focus on 200 sample cases from 1982, 1986 and 1990. Shawn Armbrust of the MId-Atlantic Innocence Project commented: “It’s great that the department is taking this on in the wake of the problems exposed by the Harward case. It’s exactly the reaction we hope for when these cases reveal systemic problems, and we hope it will motivate other labs and actors in the criminal justice system to do the same.”
