Prosecutors have also accused Edmiston of lying about working with the Tulare County District Attorney's office.
Falsified results regarding examinations and tests that were never performed. Reportedly gave false testimony in nine cases, including trials that resulted in wrongful rape convictions.
In one case, she conducted blood tests on semen recovered from a rape victim and determined defendant was excluded as the source, according to her lab notes.
However, she prepared a report saying her tests were inconclusive and testified similarly at the defendant's trial.
According to reports, she provided allegedly false testimony, misidentified hair and fiber samples, and exceeded the acceptable limits of forensic science.
However, a Luminol test failed to react positively to anything in the vehicle.
