Lax News - New DNA Inconclusive?

According to defense attorneys,
the second round of DNA testing did not conclusively tie any member of the
lacrosse team to the stripper
who alleges she was raped at the
lacrosse party. Joseph Cheshire says DNA from a "single male
source" was found, but that it wasn't identifiable. He also said that
one of the plastic fingernails also had genetic material from more than one
person, but that it again wasn't conclusive.

However, other attorneys, according to the Durham Herald-Sun,
think it is a significant advance for the prosecution's case
(scroll down).

That's if it makes it to trial, of course. Durham
attorney Tom Loflin earlier said the mass DNA test was "mammothly
unconstitutional," and he expected it would be suppressed.
