Slashdot pointed to this story of a man indicted via
his *relative's* DNA sample:


But an interesting, unmentioned issue is this: in population
DNA surveys you find that a lot of purported fathers *aren't*.
So the possibility of indicting a cuckolded man on the basis
of nominal (only) relatives is quite real.
