Kopacki sounds like a big fool. Most physical evidence like DNA and fingerprints can be circumstantial evidence and MOST cases in court are based on circumstantial evidence, which is not hard to get through courts at all. And sexual contact doesn't mean they knew one another before that night, how about a thing called stranger rape?
Check out the above link for the definition of circumstantial evidence.
"In addition, much Scientific Evidence is circumstantial, because it requires a jury to make a connection between the circumstance and the fact in issue. For example, with fingerprint evidence, a jury must make a connection between this evidence that the accused handled some object tied to the crime and the commission of the crime itself."
As for the case get through to the court, if the perp has Johnny Cochrane or some powerhouse attorney, the possibility exists he could get off.
I think what he meant was LE is working on getting a rock solid case against the perp so that he can be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and no lawyer is going to get him off on some fluke.
