DENVER (Reuters) - Crime laboratory evidence shows the 19-year-old woman who has accused Kobe Bryant of rape had consensual sex with another man hours after she said the basketball star raped her, MSNBC reported on Wednesday.
The DNA evidence from the prosecution's own laboratory could be introduced in court as early as Thursday when the Los Angeles Laker will be back in an Eagle, Colorado, courtroom for a pre-trial hearing, the cable TV report said.
Bryant's lawyer, Pamela Mackey, laid a bombshell in a prior pre-trial hearing when she suggested the woman had sex within 15 hours after she said she was raped.
Through her attorney, the young woman denied having sex so soon after she said she was raped on June 30 at a Colorado resort where she worked and Bryant was staying for out-patient surgery on his knee.
According to the MSNBC report, fresh sperm and semen samples were found inside the woman's body from samples given during a rape examination and that such evidence would prove she had sex within hours after the incident with Bryant.

Where are your cohorts Cinfla, #3Fan, and af_vet?
Cohorts they are not, I don't know them. But it's the type of malformed conclusion I would expect from one who makes statements about backing horses.
I stick to facts, not innuendo or spin. I haven't made a conclusion unlike many here.
Yeah. Well I find it disturbing too. Let that be a lesson to you. Put some money aside for that day or you might end up with a public defender.
Most defendants can't afford to pay the investigators needed to get to do their own investigation and instead are forced to rely on the states investigation. (ie the Police)
even if they can afford good legal representation.
You must have driven over the speed limit sometime in your life. I think you should be prosecuted for reckless driving and lose your license.
If Kobe Bryant wasn't a famous basketball star, you guys wouldn't be worried about him one bit. If he was just a regular black guy, none of you would care.
Its amazing how many experts on rape have posted on this thread. I am so impressed.

Kettle, meet pot.

I'm no Pamela Mackey but I've defended both rape victims and accused rapists. One of my friends is a rape victim. I think I know a little more than the average person about rape. But the great thing about this site is that you don't have to be an expert on any subject to comment, otherwise you'd be silent all the time.
