my step dauhter had her cloths and bedding taken because she was assulted in the house by a man
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 years ago.


That would probably take some time to be analysed. Generally several weeks as it would need to go to a labatory.


Also, it would be seized as evidence if it contained DNA that is incriminating or exculpating.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
if the person addmitted the crime would it still be seized and would it take more than 6weeks for results and is she liable to get her stuff back
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 years ago.


Yes, it would.


It could take many more than 6 weeks. It could be in the region of months rather than weeks.


She would get her stuff back but after the trial as it would be evidence.
