Prosecutors Reveal Albert Trial Will Feature Dna Evidence

By Compiled From Wire Services

Prosecutors plan to use DNA evidence against NBC sportscaster Marv Albert when they try him on forcible sodomy and assault and battery charges in September.

Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Arthur L. Knapp of Arlington last week filed notice with the Arlington County Circuit Court that the results of DNA analysis would be offered as evidence at trial. Albert has provided hair, saliva and blood samples in compliance with a June 5 court order.

Albert, 53, was indicted in May on charges he repeatedly bit a woman and forced her to perform oral sex on him in his hotel room shortly after midnight on Feb. 12.

The trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 22.
