Two series on investigating the Washington State Crime Lab. Forensic scientists produced results that led to jail time for many. But when their lab methods were questioned and their results discredited, prisoners who had been jailed as a result of tainted evidence or procedures stayed in jail. Teichroeb made these facts public, and soon cases were overturned and scientists were fired.
