Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:22 PM EDT
Could a lab worker here in New York pull off a lie like that those at the Massachusetts lab?
State Police tell our Fact Finders, not likely.
A spokesman says their criminal lab workers undergo a very thorough background check before getting the job.
He said they first do a criminal background check using the applicant's fingerprints. They also ask for and check all references.
The spokesman says they also look into the potential lab worker's education history -- something that apparently was not done in the case in Massachusetts.
