Dumanis warns defense attorneys of problems with LA-based lab

Posted: Updated:
Problems with drug testing of blood and urine at a Southern California lab could affect some San Diego criminal cases.

The lab in question is Pacific Toxicology Laboratories, based in Los Angeles.

District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis sent out e-mails to local defense attorneys Monday to notify them of potential testing problems.

News 8 has learned a small number of drug tests from the lab came back with false-negative results.

Defense attorneys say the results could be far-reaching.

Earlier this year, Dumanis sent out a similar notice after a Riverside County lab technician admitted to falsifying test results.
