Prosecutors need reliable DNA evidence to win cases
TrueAllele gives match statistics when crime labs can't
In 2013, a serial rapist was stalking the town of Elmira, New York. A pair of purple gloves left by a crime scene contained three-person DNA mixtures. But the crime lab couldn’t interpret their DNA data, or give a match statistic. The DNA wasn’t usable evidence.
Chemung County District Attorney Weeden Wetmore called Cybergenetics. The company’s TrueAllele® computer re-analysis of the same DNA data showed that the victim, together with suspect Casey Wilson, were on the gloves.
A Cybergenetics DNA expert testified at trial. Wilson was convicted of rape and burglary. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
