    3 is the statement which is not representative of the true operation of forensic science.

    While most police departments do indeed have forensic investigation laboratories, forensic science is not used only by the prosecution. A defense attorney that completely ignored forensic evidence or ignored forensics that cleared their client would not be a very effective defense attorney.

    The defense can, and does, hire forensic scientists as expert witnesses to refute the testimony of the prosecution.
