In a twist of fate, two Illinois dentists are being sued by Bennie Starks whom they determined, in a 1986 trial, left a bite mark on a rape victim. They claimed the bite mark as “medically certain” to have been made by Starks’ front teeth. The pair of bite mark experts were adamant of Starks guilt as the attacker, even when DNA evidence was obtained by Starks” attorneys Lauren Kaeseberg and Jed Stone. They succeeded in overcoming the now ex-Lake County District Attorney’s outlandish claims that the DNA of another male found on the victim was not determinative of Starks’ innocence. The dentists went so far, in 2012, to file a defamation lawsuit against another dental expert who disagreed with their opinions.
