Evidence and Forensics

No matter how careful they are, criminals almost always leave some trace of their identity behind. In this program, legal and forensic experts explain different types of evidence and how each is gathered and used in court. The work of various forensic specialists is described, and the Hollywood version of crime scene investigation is compared to what really happens at a site and in the lab. The video also looks at a few drawbacks of digital evidence and at how fingerprinting stacks up against DNA samples—the new gold standard in crime detection.
