Casey Anthony: DNA Tests to be Done in US

Casey Anthony’s defense team filed a motion Friday to allow Dutch experts to do additional DNA testing but have been told by Judge Belvin Perry that testing must be done in the US.

As reported by CBS News, Perry said that he did not feel comfortable with allowing evidence to leave the court’s jurisdiction.

PS: Off topic…what’s up…no one checked out my Disneyland post 🙂

From CBS News:

In a newly filed defense motion Casey Anthony’s lawyers argued that Richard Eiekelenboom’s Dutch lab, Independent Forensic Services, has sophisticated technology not available in most U.S. labs.

Defense attorneys Jose Baez and Cheney Mason also argued that all 15 Florida based labs were directly affiliated with law enforcement and therefore were potentially biased against the defense, the paper reported.

“In order to conduct truly independent forensic testing many lawyers have relied on experts from areas of academia or former law enforcement to test evidence and draw away from the inherently biased approach of law enforcement only testing,” the motion states.

Chief Judge Belvin Perry said he was inclined to grant the testing request but did not feel comfortable with allowing evidence to leave the court’s jurisdiction.

Assistant State Attorney Jeff Ashton agreed with the court saying that the prosecution had no power to compel witnesses from outside of the country to testify.
