If it is shown DNA could be easily produced matching the profile of
the accused and the only solid evidence is the DNA, in future, lawyers
should be able to have the case dismissed.

If the case is not dismissed, I foresee a number of people paying for
some samples of their DNA being done and left over some crime scene.

"It is the same DNA but I was in jail at the time, so I have a genetic
twin/clone somewhere".
