Expert witness accused of perjury

A man who has appeared in court as an expert witness for computer forensics has been accused of perjury. After 'inconsistencies' in the qualifications claimed in his resume came to light, a background check revealed that he has served prison time on a forgery charge.

This story is a good illustration of the need to conduct thorough background checks on people in positions of trust and power. Insiders who are known former forgers might be welcome in a criminal gang but not in your average court or corporation.
