12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Headlines: Supreme Court Rules Police May Take DNA Samples of Arrestees From Free Speech Radio News: Today, the Supreme Court ruled that police may take and analyze DNA samples from a suspect held for a serious offense, paving the way for the procedure to become more common across the nation. In the case Maryland versus King, the high court ruled five to four that when police officers have probable cause they can take a cheek swab during detention in custody. The case centers on the conviction of Alonzo King, a Maryland man who was identified as the perpetrator of an unsolved rape when he was booked for separate assault charges. Victims rights groups and law enforcement hailed the decision, saying it would help identify perpetrators and prevent crime, but civil rights and privacy advocates argued that the DNA collecting is a violation of the Fourth Amendment. In a moment, we’ll hear from Hanni Fakhoury, staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, but first we’re joined by Jayann Sepich, cofounder of DNA Saves, a legislative advocacy group she founded with her husband after the murder of their daughter, Katie.
