In today’s high tech world, DNA and forensic evidence are a crucial component in sexual battery and assault cases in Lee and Collier counties. The defense that “the lab screwed up” is not your best defense in court and in the jury’s eyes. If your DNA matches evidence from the victim, you’re going to need an attorney who can get evidence suppressed, or at least explained to a jury.
Suppression of evidence in sexual assault and battery cases often begins with the method in which evidence was collected. Was blood or saliva improperly obtained by the police? Did the police coerce you into giving them your DNA ? Was the sex consensual? Is there a reasonable explanation as to why your DNA was found in a certain location?
