67. sure it is, DNA evidence is more conclusive than a jury decision
Edited on Thu Mar-26-09 01:01 PM by Bacchus39
DNA evidence has used to exonerate numerous wrongly convicted people.

and there would be absolutely no reason to keep looking for suspects if the DNA evidence is conclusive.

a "solved" case need not include a jury decision on guilt or innocence. a judge can throw out a case, the prosecution can drop charges, the defendant or suspect could be dead, the accused can plead guilty. none of those instances would involve a jury trial. and again, wrong convictions can happen too, and of course guilty suspects can be found innocent as well. a jury decision doesn't make it true necessarily.
