WI Attorney General Says DNA Kit From 2018 Helps Convict Man in 2010 Crime
Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul says the state’s Sexual Assault Kit Initiative has resulted in a conviction from a 2010 case. Kaul says 37-year-old Hank W. Elmore of La Crosse is a serial sex offender who entered a guilty plea to charges last week. The sexual assault happened in Jackson County more than 10 years ago. A sexual assault examination was conducted and the kit was tested in 2018. D-N-A in the kit was matched to Elmore. He has previous convictions for similar crimes in 2003 and 2014. Elmore was sentenced to 10 years in prison, but he will only serve five if he avoids legal trouble while he is on extended supervision.
