St-99R Excluded in WI Case

In a landmark case out of LaCrosse County, WI (Case no. 10-CI-03) a Judge has excluded any testimony about Static-99R based on the developers (David Thornton & Co) refusal to produce the data for analysis. The Judge correctly concluded that the Respondent's Due Process Rights would be violated by allowing any evidence in relating to this tool, since the data is being hidden from review.

Here is a link to Forensic Psychologist Karen Franklin's blog:

The decision further erodes the credibility of this instrument, which has been in free fall for years.
