    Does anybody know of a case that has suffered due to a break in a chain of custody?

    thanks

    I work for a Sheriff's Dep. and we had a case where the chain of custudy for a bloody shirt was not properly logged, and the case was nearly dismissed. Luckily the defense attorney wasn't the brightest, and the DA was able to proceed with the case without the shirt. So, to answer your question, yes a case certainly can suffer from something as simple as an investigator forgetting to sign for a piece of evidence.
