DUKE- No Match in Second Testing

Defense attorneys say a second round of DNA tests in the Duke lacrosse rape case has found no conclusive match to any member of the team. Attorney Joe Cheshire says the report shows there was DNA material from multiple persons on one plastic fingernail, which he says was recovered from a bathroom wastebasket. The alleged victim says she was attacked at a team party. Cheshire -- who represents a team captain who has not been charged -- said the tests showed genetic material from a "single male source" but that material did not match any of the players. Defense attorneys have strongly proclaimed that all the players are innocent, pointing to an initial round of DNA tests they said found no match between the 46 players tested and the accuser.
