17 and counting: Texas Tribune on DPS crime lab scandal

More MSM coverage of the DPS drug lab scandal and the latest overturned sentence out of Galveston via the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals (the 17th, by my count), this time from Maurice Chammah at the Texas Tribune. April 5 is a day to mark on your calendar for those interested in this case. The Forensic Science Commission at its quarterly meeting will vet the final report line by line and vote on the changes before the document is completed over the summer. It will be the most thorough public discussion to date for reporters, attorneys, or any other interested parties who want to know exactly what happened in the case.

See prior, related Grits coverage of the Salvador fiasco.
