ID : 83978   
« back to classes page
It's hard to believe that DNA evidence has come so far so fast. The techniques that make it possible to identify a suspect using his or her unique genetic blueprint have only been around since 1985. Since then, DNA evidence has played a bigger and bigger role in our criminal justice system. It has been used to prove that suspects were involved in crimes and to free people who were wrongly convicted, becoming integral to many high profile criminal and civil cases. The instructor directs the New Mexico DNA Project and will explain how DNA evidence works, the limitations and the latest advances in DNA evidence.  The class will examine the case of the Baton Rouge Serial Killer.
