Bristol County DA testing rape kits that went untested for years

For years, more than a thousand rape kits potentially containing evidence that can help solve violent crimes committed in Bristol County sat untested in the state crime lab. Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn says his office is on a mission to test all of them.

Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn has pledged to clear a backlog of more than 1,000 untested rape kits, some of which date back to the 1990s.
