    DNA tests can most certainly be wrong. Ask prosecutors in Massachusetts who now have to deal with years of cases handled by a lab tech who has recently admitted to various forms of fraud, including faking qualifications for her work and fudging results to help prosecutors. Results are only reliable at all to the extent that the poeple collecting, storing, and analyzing samples are trustworthy, not at all a given as we have seen much corruption, even given the dense secrecy and loyalty among police and prosecutors. In addition, crime labs work for prosecutors: not surprisingly, prosecutors have free access to all data, whereas many in prison have had to fight years, if they succeeded at all, to obtain access to DNA evidence proving them innocent. Until we do a better job with these toola, they may well do the justice system more harm than good.
