In Denver, Colorado, news sources report that a state toxicology lab technician was fired from his position due to mistakes that were made while testing DUI blood samples. However, the technician is asserting that he should not be blamed for the errors as his boss signed off on his work. The worker, M F.-R., allegedly failed to follow lab protocol. However, he asserts that he was supposed to run initial tests on the blood samples which his supervisor was then supposed to review to ensure accuracy. As a result of errors, the state has to retest 1,700 blood samples from DUI defendants.
Now, many defense attorneys representing those charged with DUI are contesting charges. Defense lawyers say that bloodwork processed through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment lab may not be reliable and are asking for charges to be dropped against their clients.
