Summary of the Truly Agreed Version of the Bill


This bill expands the DNA profiling system by requiring any
person 17 years of age or older who is arrested for first degree
burglary under Section 569.160, RSMo; second degree burglary
under Section 569.170; or a felony under Chapter 565, 566, 567,
568, or 573 to provide a blood or scientifically accepted
biological sample upon booking at a county jail or detention
facility for the purpose of DNA profiling analysis.  Within 90
days of a warrant refusal, the arresting agency must notify the
State Highway Patrol crime laboratory which must expunge all the
DNA records taken at the arrest and destroy the sample unless the
patrol determines that the person is otherwise obligated to
submit a sample.  The prosecutor is required to notify the
laboratory if the charges are withdrawn; and the court must
notify the laboratory if the case is dismissed, the court finds
that no probable cause exists that the person committed the
crime, or the defendant is found not guilty.  If the laboratory
receives notice, it must expunge the sample and DNA profile
within 30 days.
