People Convicted of DWI May Need to Provide the State a DNA Sample

In 1996, the state of New York began collecting DNA samples from people convicted of murder or sex crimes. Since then, the database has been expanded to allow state authorities to collect DNA samples from people convicted of all felonies and many misdemeanor crimes contained in the state's penal code. Currently, the database includes DNA samples from over 386,000 people and approximately 38,000 crime scenes, according to The Associated Press (AP).
