Question and answer
Q: What are some of the anticipated changes to DNA technology?
A: nticipated changes in DNA technology development suggest that types of analyses unanticipated at the time the samples were collected may one day be a reality. [ What are the possibilities and implications of these developments? What legal issues must be considered to ensure public safety while avoiding the erosion of privacy rights? Statutes of limitations as they apply to filing charges and
appeals also will be addressed. DNA technology can be used to investigate crimes committed beyond the period of time defined by many States' statutes of limitation. For this reason, a statute's arbitrary allocation of 5 or 10 years to the investigative process may be unfair to both crime victims and those wrongfully convicted. DNA recovered from a crime committed years ago could today provide the evidence needed for conviction. Similarly, for defendants who were wrongly convicted but who may be exonerated by DNA evidence, time limits on the appeals process established before the technology was developed are hardly appropriate. ]
