DNA and Serology Cases in Mainland Japan and Okinawa
Can Your Defense Team Beat the Odds and Turn the Government’s Own
DNA Evidence Against Them?
You’ve been told by law enforcement that your DNA has been collected
as evidence in the crime you supposedly committed. They tell you that
the evidence is irrefutable. DNA never lies, they claim. They’ve
accounted for every possibility, they say.
But that, of course, is a lie. They didn’t account for
Bilecki & Tipon as your defense attorneys. They couldn’t account for the decades
of experience, the knowledge in DNA cases, and the DNA experts that Bilecki
& Tipon retains for just such cases. They didn’t account for
the fact that you’d actually try to fight the charges against you.
They forgot to consider just how important your reputation, your future,
and your freedom are to you.
At Bilecki & Tipon LLLC, we go to great lengths to protect the men
and women of the armed forces that are accused of serious courts martial
charges in the military. Whether you’re accused of sexual assault,
rape, murder, or any other criminal act in which your DNA was obtained,
it’s imperative that you contact the law offices of Bilecki &
Tipon as soon as possible.
Bilecki & Tipon Strategies and Tactics for Cases Involving DNA and
DNA evidence is often admitted into cases involving a sexual assault, rape
charges, or other illicit sex crimes. It’s also often used in cases
involving aggravated assault, manslaughter, and murder charges. What’s
important to remember is that DNA evidence isn’t enough to guarantee
a guilty verdict. Far from it. With the right understanding of DNA and
serology testing, and the right DNA experts willing to consult with the
defense team, your case goes from being unwinnable to highly competitive.
Not all “DNA tests” are created equal. The three most commonly
used tests in the military are:
Serology Testing: Serology testing is done prior to DNA testing. Forensic Biologists will
test certain bodily fluids, which can provide an immunological
indication of semen. The test cannot with absolute certainty determine if semen or
other bodily fluids are present on the sample, which makes this test open
to aggressive questioning by the defense team in court.
Autosomal STR DNA Testing: This is the most discriminating DNA test in the world today, capable of
matching two samples with odds as high as or even higher than one in one
Y-STR DNA Testing: This test will accurately detect traces of MALE DNA within a larger mixed
DNA sample. A common use for this is to identify male DNA on a vaginal,
cervical or other swab after allegations of a rape or sexual assault are
made. This test is less discriminating than Autosomal DNA testing. If
this form of DNA evidence is used to implicate you in a crime, then the
question of how it’s being interpreted and utilized becomes paramount.
Breaking Down the Government’s DNA Narrative
DNA evidence isn’t
against anyone. It’s simply one piece of evidence being used in your case. Therefore,
the defense can get just as much mileage out of DNA evidence as the prosecution can.
Bilecki & Tipon never goes into a case without a strategy, and this
is especially true of cases where DNA evidence is present. The first thing
we’ll do is consider a few essential questions, such as:
- Does the DNA evidence actually incriminate you (is Autosomal STR-DNA testing
- Is the prosecution trying to use Y-STR DNA testing to place you at the crime?
- Do we need a third party DNA expert to refute the government’s evidence,
or to test DNA evidence of our own?
- Can we use a lack of DNA evidence to secure a not-guilty verdict for our client?
- Is other evidence available that wasn’t tested by law enforcement?
If so, could it be used to exonerate our client through our own DNA tests?
It’s important to understand that DNA evidence alone is generally
not enough for the prosecution to secure a guilty verdict. With a solid defense
team like Bilecki & Tipon, the government’s own DNA evidence
can even be used against them.
