Required to submit DNA sample at time of arrest?

A new Florida law says that at the time of arrest, the arresting agency may take a DNA sample from you under certain circumstances.

If you are charged with a sex crime, homicide, burglary, theft, or any one of a number of other felony offenses in Florida, the arresting agency may now collect a DNA sample – even against your will. This applies to both adults and juveniles alike.

This evidence can be used against you in a variety of circumstances, even to tie you to other crimes. Your DNA will then be added to the DNA Database permanently.

Under certain circumstances, your attorney can get you removed from the database. Call us today for a free consultation on this issue at 813-281-2897.
