FBI Finds Errors in DNA Database, Raising Questions of its Fallibility in Court Cases

The FBI and New York State authorities have found scores of mistaken DNA profiles in the national database, showing that human error is ever-present, the New York Times reports.

The FBI found about 170 profiles with probable errors, ranging from handwriting mistakes to interpretation errors by lab technicians.

While the findings represent just a tiny fraction of the nearly 13 million profiles, they cast some doubt on evidence that has long been treated as flawless in courts, the Times wrote.

It’s unclear yet what the long-term impact on the findings will be.
