RAPE DNA-OHIO
New DNA checks on untested Ohio rape kits have found almost 1,500 hits, official says

COLUMBUS, Ohio


Ohio's attorney general says an initiative to test previously untested rape kits has led to almost 1,500 hits to DNA profiles in a law enforcement database.

A statement from Attorney General Mike DeWine says just over 8,000 sexual assault kits have been submitted by 140 law enforcement agencies since the program began in 2012. More than 4,100 kits have been tested in the ongoing effort to solve more reported sexual assaults with the help of DNA matches.

Information on any match is sent back to the appropriate local law enforcement agency to see if it can advance an investigation.

DeWine says the testing initiative has led to dozens of indictments, including 110 in northeast Ohio's Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland.
