People v. Arevalo (Cal. Ct. App. - April 14, 2014)

If your DNA is found on a rock used to smash a window, and that's how a burglar got into a building, is that evidence alone sufficient to prove that you're guilty of burglary?  In other words, does the fact that your DNA is at a crime scene establish your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt?

The California Court of Appeal says "No."
