Louisiana felon linked to gun, pleads guilty
On June 13, Jefferson Parish Assistant District Attorney Douglas Ruston secured a plea agreement. Harold Houston, previously convicted of a felony drug charge, agreed to a gun conviction. TrueAllele had calculated that a match between a pistol and the defendant was 18.7 billion times more probable than coincidence.
Earlier in case, Cybergenetics TrueAllele technology had been admitted into evidence after Dr. Mark Perlin testified in a Daubert admissibility hearing on May 19.
