Calling biological evidence into question is possible but hard

Indecent assault cases usually involve very personal elements. There are some instances in which more than just word of mouth comes into the picture in these cases. Some sexual assault cases involve DNA evidence, which can have a profound impact on the case.

When there is DNA evidence involved in the case, it can add a layer of perceived surety to the case. The prosecutors usually rely heavily on this evidence when they are working on the case. This is one type of evidence that is possible, but difficult, to call into question. Knowing what to look for and what questions to ask is a key component here.

We need you to understand that DNA evidence can be obtained from a variety of locations. Some examples include:

-- Beneath the fingernails

-- On clothing

-- On the body

-- On objects allegedly used in the rape

-- From rape kits

For the purpose of rape kits, investigators usually ask about anyone the person has had sexual contact with in the previous 72 hours. The DNA evidence that is obtained will be sent off to be processed. That is when suspects are determined. Throughout this process, there is a chance that the evidence will be mishandled or that things won't be done according to protocol.

We know that you might have some questions about DNA evidence and how it comes into the picture when it is used in an indecent assault case. We can help you to evaluate all of the evidence against you and the elements that the prosecution is using in your case. From there, we can build your defense against the charges.
