A reference blood sample was compared against the question sample semen stain using seven conventional RFLP markers digesting it with restriction enzyme Hae III. Semen stain and a blood sample was a match at seven RFLP loci examined.

The biological evidence was strong evidence along with other evidence and testimony. Williams Jefferson Clinton was impeached on 19 December 1998. He was the second US president to be impeached. William Jefferson Clinton career will always be tainted by the semen stain present on the dress.
