California Governor Jerry Brown just signed into law SB 1058 bill. The law permits habeas corpus petitioners (i.e. after a conviction) the ability to contest expert testimony that was presented against them at trial. In other words, experts who either repudiate their past testimony or used forensic “science” that is later deemed faulty by legitimate research are subject to later proceedings reversing a conviction. Personal liabilities of those experts are NOT affected by this amendment to the California Penal Code. Full Article

  1. Q

    Personal liabilities of those experts are NOT affected by this amendment to the California Penal Code? What kind of good ol by BS is this? I want to see ALL liars and purveyors of junk/trash science be held accountable. It’s only right. And that acid head in Sacramento has gotta go!
