Ex-chief says crime lab errors weren't his fault


By Mary Flood
The Houston Chronicle

Lee P. Brown testified Wednesday that crime lab mistakes made during his tenure as Houston police chief weren't his fault and that he worked hard to get the lab the resources it needed.

Brown appeared before a jury that's been asked to decide whether the city owes any money to George Rodriguez, who spent 17 years in prison after being wrongly convicted of raping a 14-year-old girl. A crime lab employee falsely testified during Rodriguez's criminal trial that blood evidence linked him to the attack.
