Famous DNA Expert Witness’s Credibility Questioned

Judge Martin E. Smith told prosecutors they must try to bring expert witness Dr. Henry Lee from Italy to Owego, NY, in order for him to offer live testimony in the second-degree murder trial of Calvin Harris. DNA analysis expert witness Lee is expected to testify that tiny amounts of blood found in the house of Calvin Harris more than five years ago is that of his estranged wife, Michele Harris, who disappeared in 2001.

Lee had already testified in the Harris case via videotape but the May 23 California ruling that Lee hid evidence in Phil Spector’s murder trial could mean that the expert’s videotaped testimony will be thrown out. Defense attorneys are expected to call into question Lee’s credibility before the Harris jury according to PressConnects.com.
