        He was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison.

        Recent tests by two laboratories hired by the
        prosecution and the defense came up with the
        same results: both rapes were committed by the
        same man, and that man was not Bruce

        Even so, the Montgomery County district
        attorney, Bruce L. Castor Jr., whose office
        convicted Mr. Godschalk, has refused to let Mr.
        Godschalk out of prison, saying he believes that
        Mr. Godschalk is guilty and that the DNA testing
        is flawed.

        Asked what scientific basis he had for concluding
        that the testing was flawed, Mr. Castor said in an
        interview today: "I have no scientific basis. I
        know because I trust my detective and my
        tape-recorded confession. Therefore the results
        must be flawed until someone proves to me

Damn pointy headed scientists!
