I’ll see your anonymous DNA expert, and raise you a Stanford University professor, .@Florida_Today.

US Constitution
Sixth Amendment: Rights of the Accused in Criminal Prosecutions

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him [emphasis added]; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.

This is how Gannett [@Gannett, https://twitter.com/Gannett] bills itself on Twitter:

We are a next generation media company that empowers communities to connect, act and thrive.
I think Gannett is closer to generations long past than they are to the next generation, as Gannett’s Florida Today doesn’t even believe that people should have a right to be confronted with the witnesses against them.

That’s a pre Bill of Rights mindset. Perhaps even medieval.

I had countered Florida Today spin about the false convictions of Wilton Dedge and William Dillon in letters to Florida Governors Jeb Bush and Charlie Crist and other public servants. Both were exonerated (2004, 2008, respectively). In my efforts to try and help exonerate Jeffrey Abramowski, I provided Jeff with a printout from a government website that directly contradicted “expert” DNA trial testimony against him.

Only two loci out of a 15 loci test were a match from Jeff to the crime scene DNA, and the expert based his testimony on just one of those two loci.

The expert claimed that a result of 17.3 at the D18S51 loci was unique, making Jeff clearly a killer. The information from the federal website I’d send to Jeff stated that 17.3 at D18S51 was about as unique as a head cold among males in paternity tests, not even identifying Jeff as Jeff, let alone a killer … there was no other forensic evidence against him, after all.

Florida Today – upon whose turf Jeff was framed – interviewed him and then claimed they had found a second source – an anonymous DNA expert – who confirmed the DNA trial testimony against Jeff.

To counter Florida Today‘s nonsense I now offer this, from Stanford University’s Dr. Barry Starr, non-anonymously:

In our experience about half the time when there are only two non-matching loci on a 15 loci test, the man is the father of the child. We require a minimum of 4 non-matching loci in order to declare that a man is not the father of a child. [emphasis added]

According to Stanford’s Dr. Starr – publicly, not anonymously – the DNA results being touted as proof that Jeff is a killer don’t even prove Jeff’s son could be the killer, let alone Jeff … 13 out of 15 NON-MATCHING loci isn’t DNA confirmation of ANYTHING.

NOT. A. THING.

A Stanford University professor confirmed what I’ve previously published about Jeff’s DNA test. Only Florida Today‘s Mr. (or Ms.) Nobody confirms what Brevard County’s nasty officers, prosecutors and judges want the public to believe.

The Innocence Project of Florida seems at a loss in helping Jeff. That’s no surprise. They’re at a loss at helping many obviously innocent men who were framed in Brevard.

This state of affairs seems to have something to do with the conflicted nature of the IPoF’s biggest funders – the Florida Bar Association and the federal government – as well as the conflicted composition of their board, which includes a past president of the American Bar Association and a former FBI agent (conflicted in that Bar associations are tasked with addressing prosecutorial misconduct, and conflicted in that the FBI is tasked with seeking indictments of public servants who fail to keep us from harm, including when police, prosecutors and judges commit deliberate misconduct, as they’ve certainly done in Jeff’s case).

I’ve blogged repeatedly about Jeff, including accounts of officer Gary Harrell’s failed attempts (plural) to solicit coached jailhouse informant testimony against Jeff. Richard Mair refused to lie on the stand in trade for a “walk,” and it may have cost him his life. Richard provided Jeff with a sworn statement about what happened. Afterwards, he was treated brutally in Florida prisons, and took his own life.

Before Richard took himself out, he tried to help out his fellow inmates … non-anonymously. Accounts of that additional bravery appear elsewhere on my blog, and can be found entering Richard’s name in the search window.

    very good susan. I have said this repeatedly. the dna “experts: only exist in the courts because of the corruptions of the legal system. They know it is all just a pile of huey.. but they will use it anyway. actual standards for the presentation of expert evidence does exist,,, but the courts have long time ago turned their backs on it. The lack of regulation in the dna industry is your first concern,, the fact that they self accredit is also the next. They all share your data, with no regard for privacy concerns, they falsify reports to make it say whatever they want it to say,, and hide whatever may be weak spots. The courts and their players all know this. It is the criminals running the show. now.

  2. Thanks for your comments, Sandra. The original expert DNA witness against Jeff was Florida Department of Law Enforcement employee Gary Daniels [https://wobblywarrior.wordpress.com/2015/02/03/baileygate-101/#comment-6429].

    The FDLE has played a significant role in covering up Brevard’s frame-ups. Their former Brevard agent, Wayne Ivey, is now the county’s sheriff. He’s so Barnum and Bailey that I can’t stand to think about him for more than a couple seconds at a time.

    I hope that you’re doing well. It was good to hear from you.

    thanks for the response susan,, yes, doing well, dealing with ptsd. thankfully making headway with the treatment. the cost of seeing and dealing with abuse, disrespect, horrifying personalities, doing the unthinkable, is emotional and mental damage. keep up the commentary,, glad to see you still speak when you see, this unthinkable horror affecting so many.,.

    • Between having a large tree fall on my house during the hurricane and having my health tank at the same time, I haven’t spoken up nearly as much as I’d have liked to. Feeling a bit better now, and I’m trying to at least keep fighting the good fight on Twitter, if I can’t manage a blog post. I’m glad you’re making progress with your PTSD. The nightmares, flashbacks and insomnia can be relentless, I know. But remission is possible; I was there once upon a time. Here’s hoping we both get there soon! Take care, Sandra.

    susan, do you think your professor would be willing to examine and make a comment on my dna testing from 1994 where three loci were tested and based on one difference that actually turned out to have been transposed, the man was declared excluded. I could use a professional statement on this very old testing and its reliability.

    • I haven’t been in touch with the professor, I just accessed what he’d already published. It couldn’t hurt anything to try and get in touch with him through his website … if he can’t help you, maybe he can steer you to another resource. If he won’t help, maybe you can try to establish enough of a link to request an 21st century test through the courts via one of the popular family DNA websites, like Ancestry.com, Family Tree DNA or 23 and Me. Hope you get answers soon, Sandra.
