Wake.MyNC.com: NC Attorney General: Major Changes At Crime Lab

“North Carolina’s attorney general appointed an interim director of the embattled state-run crime lab on Wednesday to review the department for problems like those found in a unit that analyzes blood.

Attorney General Roy Cooper said Gerald Arnold, a former chief judge of the state Appeals Court, will serve as interim director of the State Bureau of Investigation crime lab. Arnold’s main job will be to see if mistakes found in the serology section – where some analysts didn’t always fully report blood test results in their lab reports – were repeated in the lab’s six other sections.

“The key here is going to be to make sure we solve the problems, restore the public confidence in the SBI and move forward with them solving crimes, protecting the public and exonerating innocent people,” Cooper said.
