Grand Jury Indicts DNA Profile To Avoid Statute Of Limitations
A Franklin County grand jury has indicted someone without knowing their name.
The county prosecutor’s office announced Tuesday that jurors have indicted John Doe for a 1994 rape in order to prevent the 20-year statute of limitations from expiring.
Prosecutor Ron O’Brien says a DNA profile has been obtained and saved, and if a suspect is identified the indictment will be amended to include the person’s name.
O’Brien says Ohio courts have updeld the use of “John Doe indictments.”
