from the Buffalo News,
At a news conference held in his office Friday morning, Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III addressed allegations of evidence tampering in the Patrick Kane rape investigation.
Sedita said the forensic evidence in the case was not compromised or tampered with, including the brown paper bag that was allegedly left at the home of the accuser’s mother.
“The rape kit was never in any kind of bag, Sedita said, “and it has never left the custody of ... the laboratory since.”...
edita said it was time to break his silence, stating that “the issue here is the integrity of the criminal justice system and the public’s confidence in the criminal justice system.”
“This office is not responsible for this circus,” he said.
When asked by a reporter when he thinks this case would go to the grand jury, Sedita responded: “The question in my mind is not when this case will go to a grand jury but if this case will go to a grand jury.”
