DNA tests for people convicted of misdemeanors could be allowed under Colorado bill


“DENVER – A state representative took his own DNA sample at a news conference Tuesday announcing a proposal that would require people convicted of misdemeanors to submit samples for a database.

“DNA is a tool that works and expanding will make this a safer place for all Coloradoans,” said Rep. Dan Pabon.

A coalition of district attorneys said they support Rep. Pabon’s bill.

“Criminals do not follow a neat pattern of only committing one type of offense,” said Dawn Weber, Chief Deputy District Attorney in Denver, “We don’t see that they only commit a felony or type of felony, so passage of legislation that relates to collection for a misdemeanor conviction does have the capacity to catch and identify these very serious criminals.”
