We Win, They LoseThe Wit and Wisdom of Three Guys Named Brent, Mark and Mike

Check out this quote from the attorney for the pizza guy accused of murdering ten women. After getting a DNA sample from said pizza guy, the police checked it against the victims, and -- lo and behold! -- it was a match for all ten. The likelihood of the genetic profile belonging to someone other than the pizza guy was one in one-quintillion.
So what was pizza guy's lawyer's reaction? Here it is, in all its glory:
Defense attorney John Tyre said outside court that DNA does not prove murder. “If it is his DNA it indicates he had sex with these women some time prior to them dying,” Tyre said.
"If it is his DNA"? Doesn't the one in one-quintillion odds get you past the whole resonable doubt thing?
And I guess this pizza guy just happened to have sex with all ten murder victims "some time prior to them dying." The odds on that are even lower than one in one-quintillion. (How many zeroes are in a quintillion?)
And how does the attorney know it happened prior to "them dying"? (Also, notice the reference -- these women just "died," they weren't killed or anything!)
Wow, this guy is good. Maybe that's why he asks on his website:
Why would you have any attorney handle your matter when you can have a "certified criminal law specialist" work with you to get the most out of your defense.
