Henderson & Waterkotte, P.C. criminal defense attorney Mick Henderson was called upon by the KSDK News I-Investigation team to explain the importance of chain of custody. It is part of an investigation into missing evidence by the Madison County, Missouri sheriff’s office.
“The ramifications? I’m going to look at every single case that has been brought by those two deputies, and that sheriff. Was that evidence left in an unlocked room without video surveillance? Without proper procedures from preventing people from messing up that evidence or contaminating it? If that happens, absolutely, that arrest is called into question. And I think it’s every defense attorney’s job to investigate that and find if that’s occurred in any case,” said Henderson.
