Kewaunee County District Attorney Andrew Naze is pleased to see progress being made as the State of Wisconsin clears up the backlog in processing sexual assault kits. That effort has resulted in 560 DNA links to suspects in dormant assault investigations. While none of those involve cases in Kewaunee County, Naze says such successes give victims and the public hope for justice. He says it should also remind law enforcement agencies of the need for prompt processing of sexual assault evidence.
The processing of the backlog of sexual assault kits has helped local investigators bring charges against suspects including one in a Door County case of child sexual abuse.
