Not bathing was good advise.
Preserves evidence, of course.
DNA will still be there.

This entire situation doesn't sound at all like it was handled professionally.
The child most likely wanted to take a bath or shower to literally "wash away" what were the reminents of a heinous experience! Prolonging that need was in no way beneficial. Someone should have taken the evidence immediatley at the hospital!!:(

The coroner must follow the agreement by the DA. Sounds like the assistant needs to check with his boss. It is sad, but it is true..... This nation needs government reform!
