Ohio bill requires DNA samples in felony arrests



Published: Thu, March 25, 2010 @ 9:30 a.m.

The measure approved Wednesday now goes to Gov. Ted Strickland for his consideration. The bill also opens DNA testing to parolees.

Another provision is meant to ensure unbiased police lineups by making sure the officer in charge doesn’t know who the suspect is.
