New Crime Lab Speeds Conviction Process

Wednesday February 04, 2009 – According to the Mooresville (NC) Tribune, jurors took less than 15 minutes to convict a suspect in a gun and drug case after testimony by the head of Iredell County’s new crime lab.

Sheriff Phil Redmond told the paper that it would have taken at least 18 months for the state crime lab to analyze evidence in the case against Timothy Leroy Nixon. He was charged with possession of crack cocaine and possession of a .38 caliber pistol.
Instead, the North Carolina county has opened its own crime lab, and the sheriff told the newspaper that helped expedite the case when prosecutors needed additional testing conducted.

Todd Huml, director of the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Crime Lab, testified about the forensic evidence at Nixon’s federal trial, according to the newspaper.
