It’s finally official:
“Reade Seligmann and Collin Finnerty, both (Duke University) 20-year-old sophomores, have been charged with first-degree rape, first-degree forcible rape and kidnapping, the officials said. “
This is what bothers me:
“Court documents filed in the case have said a medical examination of the accuser showed signs consistent with sexual assault. DNA samples from the players failed to match material collected by investigators, defense attorneys hired by some of the players said last week.”
I do even for a moment pretend to be an expert on DNA testing. Still, I fail to comprehend how am assailant’s DNA might be absent after a brutal rape. Is this even remotely possible? Wouldn’t the rapist have to be wearing some sort of space suit? One would think that the attacker would minimally have to force the victim to thoroughly bathe every square inch of her body, inside and out. Am I missing something?
