Baltimore jury hears TrueAllele® before convicting "consent" rapist
In Maryland, a Baltimore jury convicted a man on May 8 who had been acquitted in four previous sexual assault trials. In these trials, Nelson Clifford claimed the encounters were consensual. Clifford was found guilty of third-degree sex offenses; a prior conviction may land him in prison for life. Cybergenetics used TrueAllele to separate the DNA mixtures, and Dr. Mark Perlin testified about the match statistics that placed Clifford and his victims on the ligature.
