Dr. DiMaio is a disgrace to his profession.  Every Defense attorney with an obviously guilty client can get Dimaio to testify for their defense.  Above you see the reporters discussing Phil Spector who was found guilty but would go from place to place threatening people with a gun until one day he actually shot someone.  Di Maio said no Spector did not kill someone the victim shot herself. In the recent Trial of George Zimmerman Dr. Dimaio contradicted the evidence of the Florida Medical examiner and implied that the work of this examiner was faulty and inconsequential. He then proceeded to match his testimony verbatim to the actions of the defendant to justify a self defense case. It appeares like Dr. Dimaio would say anything for pay.

While this situation is particularly egregious, this is not the first time that Dr. Dimaio had testified as a paid gun for a defense attorney. An article in Billboard stated the following about Dimaio "A prosecutor in Phil Spector's murder trial accused a forensic pathologist who testified actress Lana Clarkson shot herself to death of tailoring his testimony to favor Spector." ; DiMaio also defended his reliance on a German study of blood spatter in which a scientist shot calves to collect evidence on how far blood spatter can travel. American studies cited by the prosecution involved experiments shooting into sponges.;Jackson stressed that DiMaio had already been paid $26,000 by the Spector defense. Asked how much more he might get, the expert said, "I don't know. The longer you keep talking..." The courtroom erupted in laughter.; California saw through Dimaio's doctored testimony and rendered a verdict of guilty to the defendant Phil Spector.

In the ruthless murder case where scott peterson was found guilty of killing his pregnant wife dimaio also testified for the defense minimizing the act as well as testifying on behalf of the defense.

While Dimaio may have once been a useful force in his field and may have written a manual for medical examiners. It has become very obvious that he can be paid huge sums of money to falsify testimony. The license of dimaio must be revoked so that he can not stand in the way of justice any further for a check.
