Reports say it’ll take 6 to 8 weeks for Ben’s DNA to come back. Doesn’t the season start about then?
Questions of credibility, consent and science likely are guiding Georgia authorities as they investigate a sex assault allegation against Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, lawyers and police say. Investigators requested a DNA sample from Roethlisberger, although they did not say what kind of evidence they collected to which it could be compared. In Pittsburgh, results of DNA testing can take six to eight weeks on average, said Downtown criminal defense attorney Bill Difenderfer. “DNA has been nothing short of a revolution in cases of sex assault allegations,” said University of Pittsburgh law professor David Harris. “They can prove that there was activity between two people, if there is any question of the person being accused not being the right one.”
