Supreme Court Will Review Maryland’s ‘DNA Law’

November 10th, 2012 by WCBC Radio

Maryland's "DNA Law"  will be reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court next year, according to the Baltimore Sun. The law would allow police to take samples of suspects' genetic material for possible matches to other crimes. The law, a crime-fighting initiative of Governor Martin O'Malley, was ruled unconstitutional by Maryland's highest court in April.; however in July, U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts issued an order allowing police to continue collecting DNA samples- which had many believe it would be reviewed by the Supreme Court soon after.
