DNA EVIDENCE….TalkLeft gives us the latest on the preposterous “unidentified co-ejaculator” theory that desperate prosecutors cling to in order to avoid having to admit that they’ve put an innocent person in jail. I know that nobody likes copping to an error, but it’s hard to believe that people can get so wrapped up in their own theories that they refuse to admit the truth even when it’s (figuratively) printed in 100 point type right in front of their faces.

But Jeralyn also has some good news for those of us who take the constitution seriously: if your lawyer shows up at the stationhouse, the cops need to let him in. In Indiana, anyway.

UPDATE: And speaking of the criminal justice system, Mark Kleiman wants the movie rights to this case.
