Default DNA testing??????

My friend is at OSP for a non-violent crime, he has been there for a little over 5 years. Today I get a letter telling me that he had to give them some DNA. He said that only violent offenders and sexual offenders normally have to give DNA. Does anyone have any information on this? Do you have any idea why they would want his DNA? This isn't setting right with me, and advice would be helpful.

Sounds a lil weird to me too! My guy is over at OSP too. Maybe it's a routine thing! Who knows. Has he been there long? You would think they would do all that kind of stuff at A&R if it was routine though huh?

I think it is one of the newer laws everyone convicted of a felony must give DNA samples

It just seems odd to me, he is a non-violent offender, no sexual history, it is just odd. He's been there for 5 years, if it was routine I'd think it would have been done already. Check with your guys and let me know if you get any information!!! Thanks!!!

It doesn't make any difference if you are non-violent or not. Only if you are a felon or not. If your in prison you are a felon. This would also include those on parole and probation

That being the case, it looks like half of Oklahoma will have to be put into the DNA database. Did they ever decide who would be paying for the testing, would it be the prisoner or the taxpayers?

I just had to give a dna swab at probation a few months ago, its for all felony's, it gets put into the data base for any crimes that have been committed where dna has been found, so if your a felone and you committ another crime they can caught you better with your own dna. Sorry so late just found this site.

I gave D.N.A. going through Lex this last year cause now its for every felon. Oklahoma is in the process of broadening their data base to help resolve older or dead end investigations. Hey heres an idea why dont they have it mandatory for law encroachment officials to be a part of this data base or lose their retirement !! Think of the violent crimes they perpatrait during their carreer. Did I say PerP
