Utah Sen. Hatch Advocates For Rapid DNA Testing At Crime Lab

On Thursday Utah Senator Orrin Hatch toured the Utah Crime Lab to advocate for new forensic research tools that quickly process DNA evidence.
Senator Hatch focused specifically on the DNA analysis area. Pilar Shortsleeve is the chief forensic scientist in the crime lab. She says recent funding from the Utah legislature and Department of Public Safety allowed them to purchase new robotic tools to speed up backlogs of DNA evidence from crimes.
