Fight Over Child Support and DNA Testing in Dallas County Court ...
Courthouse News this morning highlights the story of Ginger Weatherspoon, a former assistant attorney general in Greg Abbott's office who claims she was fired after refusing to lie under oath about 254th District Judge David Hanschen. Weatherspoon, who worked from July 2006 through February '08 in the the Office of the Attorney General's child support division, has filed a nine-page whistleblower suit in Dallas County District Court in which she claims she was fired for telling her direct superior that two other attorneys pressured her, repeatedly, to sign "a false affidavit" that said [more...]

Dallas DNA « The Reality-Based Community
The Discovery Channel now has a documentary series based on the unit of the Dallas County DA’s office that does its own investigations of possibly innocent people in prison, rather than stonewalling demands for DNA checks as so many prosecutors’ offices do. The unit is a transparently good idea, and every major DA’s office ought to have one. If I were a Governor or a state Attorney General, I’d establish a statewide office to boot; Eric Holder might consider creating a similar unit within the Justice Department (to cover state as well as federal prisoners). The exoneration of the [more...]

Editorial: Test all DNA in Skinner case | Explore The Law
Rape victims involved in 20 Dallas County DNA exoneration cases know that. At one point, they thought they could go on with their lives knowing justice had been done, but it really hadn't been. Opponents of Texas' 2001 law providing access to DNA said the courts already had what they needed to deal with potential cases of miscarriage of justices, a position that looks silly today. It's possible that Skinner is as guilty as the West Texas sky is blue. Texas courts say they're sure of it. But they don't have all the facts, and there's no excuse not to have them.

Il DNA (o acido deossiribonucleico) è una molecola che ha l’aspetto di una doppia elica formata da due catene di nucleotidi. I nucleotidi sono piccole molecole costituite da un gruppo fosfato, uno zucchero (deossiribosio) e una base azotata; mentre le prime due componenti sono sempre uguali e costituiscono l’ossatura della doppia elica, le basi azotate esistono in quattro “versioni” differenti.

Further, for so few--only 21.6 nucleotides out of 16,569--DNA differences to have accumulated at anything near the measured mutation rates, a much shorter time than "200,000 years" must have transpired since Mitochondrial Eve arrived on the scene. To stretch out across evolutionary time the occurrences of so few DNA changes requires a gymnastic juggling of the coefficients used in the various models, and appears to require a biologically unrealistic, super-slow mutation rate.
