Free at last!
_________ 12 years in prison, a Texas inmate walked free on Jan. 17. The exoneration came courtesy of University of Wisconsin-Madison law students and professors – and DNA tests proving that Christopher Ochoa, now 33, was innocent of a 1998 rape ________ murder. 
Fortunately for Ochoa, evidence from the crime was still available for DNA fingerprinting, a simple test that can prove whether a biological sample did or did not come from a suspect.
______________, the arrival of cheap and fast DNA fingerprinting is overturning the quest to convict the guilty and free the innocent. ____________ technology is far more specific than earlier tests of antibodies in blood or semen. Terry Laber, who directed the blood laboratory at the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, says, “___________ DNA, you’d have a good suspect, and do all the tests you could do, and you’d end up with 30% to 40% of the population qualifying”. 
But __________ biological samples – from blood, skin cells or semen – are DNA fingerprinted, the specific DNA sequence is extremely unlikely to be found except in the perpetrator. A match, ___________, is “very powerful evidence”.
