DNA Expungement in Denver and Arapahoe County: When Found Not Guilty or Case Is Dismissed

Posted by Terry O'Malley | May 10, 2017 | 0 Comments

When a person is charged with a felony crime (such as Internet Luring of a Child, felony Assault, or felony Theft) in Denver or Arapahoe County, they must provide a DNA sample. Their DNA sample is then placed into a large database in the event that any crimes are committed in the future and a DNA sample from a crime needs to be searched in the database. In some cases, a person may qualify for a DNA expungement.  Our criminal defense attorneys know how to qualify a person for this process, and to ensure that the DNA sample is destroyed.

Below is the law regarding when you can petition the court to have your DNA sample destroyed:

“A person whose biological substance sample is collected pursuant to section 16-22-103 qualifies for expungement if: (a) in the case of a sample collected based upon the filing of a charge or based upon a final court order, each felony charge stemming from the charges has, by final court order, been dismissed, resulted in an acquittal, or resulted in a conviction for an offense other than a felony offense.”

There are other ways our criminal defense lawyers can help you too, such as if a felony charge was never filed after you were arrested. Call our office today at 303-830-0880 to find out more about whether you qualify for DNA expungement.
