News: Mary Corporon Featured in Several News Stories Over Delayed DNA Results in C&J Criminal Case
C&J criminal defense attorney Mary C. Corporon has recently been featured in several news stories regarding the now more than year long delay in obtaining DNA results from the Utah State crime lab in one of her cases. In an article for the Salt Lake Tribune, Mary explained that her client's case is hardly unique: "Over and over again, in cases in which sex crimes are alleged, the critical evidence is not available for many months, or a year or more. This impacts everyone in the system." Mary went on to say that the delay in obtaining DNA results impacts her clients, the falsely accused, victims, and taxpayers. "The problem is not that we humans don't know how to process DNA evidence," Corporon wrote in an email to the Tribune. "The problem is the state of Utah will not allocate enough funds to hire enough qualified scientists and create enough state-of-the-art laboratories to process the quantity of evidence being collected. This is purely and simply an issue of not valuing the Bill of Rights, and victim's rights, enough to allocate the funds necessary to guarantee those rights." 2nd District Judge Thomas Kay has said he will sign an order demanding that someone from the state crime lab to appear at a December 15 hearing to explain the delay in releasing the DNA results.
