Individualizing Oil Delivery Imprints
How can a defendant get a fair trial when charged with rigging a series of fuel oil delivery slips in a period of fuel shortages and energy crunch? This is a problem for the courts and defense attorneys, but the document examiner in the same case can be faced with an unusual problem. How can the source of the slips be established? Are they from one meter? Or from several? Such a determination might well reveal significant evidence relevant to the indictment.
