French lab rules out date-rape drug

Morrison061220wide

Testifying over speaker phone at a hearing for Annapolis Midshipman Kenny Morrison who is accused of drugging and raping two women, also students at the Naval Academy, Pascal Kintz, director of the French laboratory ChemTox, said in a heavily accented voice, “we can say with huge accuracy that there was no exposure”.

Hair samples from the two victims were sent by the prosecution to the French laboratory for analysis after previous tests by a Texas lab were called into question at an earlier Article 32 hearing.

About

Courtartist is me, Art Lien. I've been sketching the courts since 1976, and for most of that time the U.S. Supreme Court has been my regular beat. I've been working almost exclusively for NBC News since 1980. Courtroom sketching is a form of visual journalism or reportage drawing that is slowly dying out. Where once upon a time news organization each had their own artist covering a story, today a "pool" artist often sketches for all. It is a demanding and stressful discipline where the drawing is often done directly and under tight deadline.
