finger prints

How long can finger prints stay on another body if someone was touched inappropriatly and they wanted to prove it? IS thier a way to show finger prints I know you can find semen but that part didnt happen.

  • Fingerprints would not leave a mark on the human body--perhaps bruising in the shape of fingers. The human body is too oily, and the fingerprint oils from another person would not remain. In the case of rape or molestation, hospital staff would collect samples of semen, blood, hair, and clothing fibers, as well as photographs of the victims most pronounced injuries and any other marks/bruises on the body to make the connection to the perpetrator of the crime.
