Crime Lab Budget Cuts: The Department of Public Safety has announced that state budget cuts to their crime lab system will mean an $11.5 million shortfall in legislative appropriations for 2018-19 fiscal budget to fund crime lab tests. According to local prosecutors, Liberty County will now be required to pay for tests done to obtain evidence to prosecute criminal cases. Liberty County DA Logan Pickett said his office only found out last week that the new law that will be in effect starting Sept. 1 of this year. County Attorney Matthew Poston said a large majority of the cases his office prosecutes require some form of lab testing. DA Pickett said, between testing blood alcohol levels, testing to confirm the chemical make up of a controlled substance and the most costly, DNA testing, the lab costs will add up. Both prosecutors said, so far, there is no money in their respective budgets to pay for those lab costs and they are concerned about how state lawmakers intend for Texas counties to absorb the costs of criminal prosecutions under the new law.
