Dealing with DNA Evidence by Andrei Semikhodskii

Book Description

Giving the reader an in-depth understanding of DNA evidence in criminal practice, this text explains in clear language how DNA evidence is obtained and how it can be successfully challenged in court to minimize its impact or even dismiss it completely. Since it first entered the criminal legal practice DNA has become an indispensable tool in fighting crime, as it allows both unambiguous identification of the criminal by traces of biological material left at the crime scene as well as acquitting innocent suspects. This book: * outlines the various types of testing used to obtain DNA evidence * highlights the weaknesses of DNA testing, presenting and discussing defence strategies for refuting DNA evidence * shows how DNA should be treated as just another piece of evidence and how on its own it is often not enough to convict someone of a particular crime. This book is essential reading for students and practitioners of criminal law and practice and forensic science and law.

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

We do really need this book as the law of evidence is becoming one vast DNA test in many fields where the defence insists on challenging basic factual statements (on instructions from the client, of course).

The questions really are – what use is this book and does it help me with my work?

The answer to both questions is a resounding ‘yes’. DNA is now the indispensable weapon in the fight against crime because it allows both the unambiguous identification of the defendant from traces of biological material left at the scene of a crime, whilst acquitting the innocent.

In plain English, ‘Dealing with DNA Evidence’ states how DNA evidence is actually obtained – something many of us are totally unfamiliar with. Semikhodskii describes the various types of DNA test which are available and what the weaknesses of DNA testing...
