    Default Identical twins are charged with rape after DNA evidence fails to tell them apart

    Detectives decided to charge both men
    Vagner Vidal/INS News Agency


    IDENTICAL twins have been charged with rape – even though police can’t prove which one carried out the alleged attack.
    Mohammed and Aftab Asghar, 22, were arrested after DNA evidence provided a possible link to one, or both, the brothers.
    They are accused of attacking a 17-year-old girl in a park near Reading on Guy Fawkes Night in 2011.
    Since identical twins come from the same egg, they have the same DNA.

    Both twins appeared in court yesterday and *prosecutors have asked for more time to study evidence which may lead to only one of them facing trial.
    Prosecutor Sandra Beck told Reading Crown Court: “It is an unusual case. They are identical twins. The allegation is one of rape.
    “There is further work due and there is an *indication which would tend to support that one was not at the location.’’
    No further details were revealed about the alleged offence.
    Ms Beck confirmed a trial date for the pair had already been set for December 2.

    The twins were granted bail by Recorder Lawrence West QC on condition that they live and sleep at their home in Reading.

    They must also report to police three times a week, not contact the alleged victim and not to go to a particular village in *Berkshire.
    Scientists have *discovered new evidence that tiny genetic changes early in development allow for DNA differences as twins grow older.
    But even if changes do occur, they are normally so tiny it is difficult to spot them.
    In February, identical twin brothers were arrested on suspicion of a series of rapes in France.
    The 24-year-old suspects, named only as Yohan and Elwin, were accused of raping six women aged between 22 and 76 in Marseille.
    A chief investigator said police were unable to *determine which twin’s DNA was found at some of the crime scenes across the city because regular tests could not distinguish between the two.

    Freaky. Unfortunately the perp will probably walk since they can't definitively prove which one did it.

    See! Who needs a trial, the one on the right it is!

    But seriously, that's a shitty situation. And what a crap brother one of them is for letting the other one get caught up in this.

    Yikes, they're both so ugly. Their poor mother, she had a fugly kid x2.

    Clearly the twins themselves know who did it but my guess is they are presenting a united front hoping that both of them will go free. Fuckers.

    I remember seeing that one. Isn't it if one of them suffered an illness or was exposed to things the other wasn't at some point then they can pick up the markers at a cellular level?

    I think so. Gil Grissom figured it out!

    Something similar was on Maury years ago. It wasn't a rape case of course, but it was one of those delightful "who's your daddy" episodes. They couldn't determine who the father was, and in Maury fashion, both denied being the father.

    Something similar also was on one of the crime shows I fancy. They arrested one brother, who ended up throwing his twin under the bus and blaming the crime on him, IIRC. I can't remember the resolution of the case, though.

    I say the one with the wonky left eye did it....er, wait. They both have a wonky left eye.

    If the shit starts running down hill,...I bet one of them will start flapping their mouths pretty quick. No way I'd cover for a brother that did this, and risk myself going to jail! There is no way I would cover for ANYONE!!!!
