TrueAllele helps convict Louisiana man of molesting young girl
Cybergenetics Dr. Mark Perlin testified on Friday morning about a DNA mixture swabbed from the inside of a ten year old girl's training bra. TrueAllele computer processing had separated the mixture into three genetic components. Perlin said that the major part of the bra mixture was from the girl, while a minor 20% fraction was connected to Henry Lewis, Jr. with a match statistic of half a billion.
That afternoon the unanimous Ascension Parish jury found Lewis guilty of child molestation. "The DNA experts were crucial with their testimony in securing Lewis' guilty verdict," said prosecutors Joni Buquoi and Amy Colby of the 23rd Judicial District Attorney’s Office. Lewis faces at least 25 years in prison.
