DNA TESTING SERVICES FOR THE WISCONSIN INNOCENCE PROJECT

(contract last updated 04/01/2016)

SCOPE: Contract for the purchase of post-conviction forensic DNA testing, including short tandem repeat (“STR”) analysis, Y-STR DNA analysis, miniSTR analysis, mitochondrial DNA (“mtDNA”) sequencing, serological testing and consulting and expert witness services regarding conducted testing.

 

The Wisconsin Innocence Project (“WIP”) is a clinical program run out of the University of Wisconsin Law School that provides pro-bono legal assistance to wrongfully convicted persons and works to remedy the causes of wrongful convictions.  As part of our program, law students work with supervising attorneys to investigate and litigate claims of innocence.  In many cases, forensic DNA testing is conducted as part of the investigation process.  In addition to proving innocence, DNA testing often helps identify the real perpetrator.  Post-conviction DNA testing is governed by Wisconsin statute and may be granted at the expense of the state or the defendant.  In our cases, post-conviction DNA testing from the Wisconsin State Crime Lab may not be an option because the State Crime Lab works primarily for prosecutors and raises the potential for conflicts. 

 

Evidence for testing will be supplied to the lab for testing via overnight shipping.  The evidence is generally shipped directly from the state agency where it was stored. Because the facts of each case are unique, it is difficult to determine the type of testing that will need to be conducted and the number of items for which we will request testing.  (This depends on a number of factors such as: what type of evidence was collected, how many pieces of evidence were collected, how much DNA evidence is found on the item, whether the DNA samples are mixed or degraded, etc.)  Ideally, we would like STR testing to be conducted on each sample that is sent to the lab with the ability to upload the sample into the Combined DNA Index System (“CODIS”).
