Expert Witness Sexual Assault
Forensic DNA Experts specializes in sexual assault charges. We also handle murder, burglary, crime scene evidence and paternity issues (anything that relates to DNA evidence), but sexual assault charges have a special type of testing and crime labs pay particular attention to the type of body fluid where the DNA originated. Sexual Assault charges bring a unique kind of trial that has a specific kind of evidence, one where you certainly need to have a PhD scientist who has specialized knowledge in the different types of bodily fluids that are generally not found at other crime scenes.
A Sexual Assault DNA Consultant
For most crimes like murder and burglary the agencies are likely to look for DNA in an effort to identify the individual and be able to place him or her at the scene. However, in sexual assaults great attention is focused on what the bodily fluid is, where it originated, and how it came to be there in addition to identifying the underlying DNA. The crime lab may test for semen, saliva, amylase, urine, or blood and the verdict may well hinge on the accuracy and specificity of these tests. Many of these tests do not accurately identify the fluid. Crime labs, crime lab analysts, the police and ultimately juries and courts assume it is what it is reported to be because it is not challenged and they are unaware of the inherent weaknesses of these unreliable tests. Many of these inconclusive results should be questioned, but a knowledgeable scientist with expertise in this specific area is required to understand the crime lab report and contest the questionable results. Extremely few forensic scientists or consultants have the education, training and depth of knowledge to understand all of the details behind these scientific assays. Many of these tests can and should be challenged in court, and Forensic DNA Experts is ready to work with you to discredit these and other disputable scientific conclusions. If you are involved in a sexual assault case that hinges on the testing of these and other biological fluids and substances, you owe it to yourself or your client to contact us today. Forensic DNA Experts is a company dedicated to the understanding of these tests, their limitations, and helping you to challenge them in court.
