St. Louis press raise awareness of wrongfully arrested detainees

U.S. Supreme Court allows DNA collection

Those facing criminal charges in Missouri may have heard of a recent United States Supreme Court case, Maryland vs. King, 12-207.

The White House and some of the Supreme Court justices compared the routine collection of DNA samples to fingerprinting, but the court's dissenting opinion maintains that the practice violates the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
