Trial to Come for 12-Year-Old Rape Case

DNA proves the accused raped girl while her boyfriend was restrained: Police




    A 33-year-old man has been ordered held for trial in the 1998 rape of a then-15-year-old girl.

    Thirty-three-year-old Calvin Gadson was arrested last month based on DNA evidence. He is charged with raping a girl who was walking with her boyfriend in a park in February 1998.

    The woman is now 27. She testified Thursday that two armed men attacked them, raping her while holding her boyfriend at gunpoint.

    She says can't identify her attackers, but prosecutors says that a 1-in-10-billion match links Gadson to the crime.

    Police are still seeking the second suspect.
