||On January 25, 2009, Jumez Lee was fatally shot at a private
party in a Mont Pleasant bar. A second victim who was nearby was also non-fatally injured by the same bullet.
||A gun (not the murder weapon) was found discarded outside of the bar.
||The New York State Police Forensic Investigation Center developed a small amount of DNA data from the gun.
||The manual methods used by the lab were unable to interpret such a small amount of DNA data.
||On the same data, the computer used math to connect the gun to Sylvester Young with a match statistic of 2.3 million.
||On May 13, 2015, Dr. Mark Perlin testified before a Schenectady county jury about TrueAllele’s results.
||The jury found Sylvester Young guilty of murder and several weapons charges. He was sentenced to 90 years in prison to life.
