DNA Finds Man Guilty, Not GuiltyIn 1992, after serving 11 years in prison for rape, Kerry Kotler becomes one of the first convicts in the United States to be liberated by DNA evidence. In this article, he is charged with another rape on the basis of DNA evidence, which determines that his semen matches that found on the victim's clothing. Prosecutors speculate that the DNA used in the previous case had been contaminated, thus resulting in a false negative result that enabled Kotler to be released.
