Conviction for kidnapping to commit rape, rape, sexual battery by restraint, and sexual penetration with a foreign object is affirmed over defendant's claims that: 1) the trial court prejudicially erred by allowing introduction of DNA evidence in a cold hit case without a Kelly hearing, and by permitting introduction of DNA evidence obtained with an Identifiler test kit without such a hearing; 2) the collection of his DNA sample violated the Fourth Amendment; 3) the trial court erred in denying a Batson-Wheeler challenge; and 4) the prosecutor committed prejudicial misconduct.
