Toney Says AG Kaul’s Crime Lab Testing Failures “Are Staggering”

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul released his crime lab testing data last week, and according to Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney, “the failures are staggering.”

Toney said Kaul has campaigned on fixing crime but “is trying to bury his abysmal failure on mismanaging the crime lab.”

According to Toney, Kaul is playing politics with public safety by limiting the amount of evidence prosecutors and cops can submit to the lab, in a failed effort to improve his turnaround times.

Toney also points to the fact that Kaul is testing significantly less items than former Attorney General Brad Schimel and is still taking longer to test many categories of key items in comparison to Schimel, including DNA.

Toney and Kaul are locked in a battle for the race for State Attorney General.
