HCS/SCS/SB 423 - This act exempts traffic violations cases from the $15 criminal case surcharge used to fund the DNA profiling analysis of convicted felons.
This act requires that the sheriff of the county assigned to an offender perform the DNA sample collection when such qualified offender is under the custody and control of a company contracted by the county or court to perform supervision or treatment. Currently, the statute only provides for who will conduct the DNA sample collection when an offender is under the custody of the Department of Corrections or a county jail.
Currently, every individual who pleads guilty or is convicted of a felony or sexual offense, under Chapter 566, RSMo, or has been determined to be a sexually violent predator, must have a sample collected for purposes of DNA profiling analysis. This act specifies that the sample is collected upon entering or before release from a Department of Corrections reception or diagnostic center, county jail, detention facility, state correctional facility, or other institution. Such institutions include those that are operated by a private, local, or state agency.
This act is identical to SCS/HBs 361 & 684 (2005).
