Expungement of Your DNA Sample in Jefferson County, Colorado, When Not Guilty or Case Dismissed
Colorado continues to go overboard when a person is charged with a felony crime. Note that I said “charged” with a crime – not “convicted” of a felony. So much for Colorado lawmakers believing a person is innocent until proven guilty. Now, everyone charged with a felony in Jefferson County and across Colorado must submit to the taking of a biological DNA sample. Then, your DNA is put into a huge database to search in the event future crimes are committed by anyone. Read more on lawyers and DNA Expungment and Sealing.

DNA Sample Expungement and Destroyed in Douglas County Courts – How a Defense Attorney Gets it Done
Colorado law provides that when you are found not guilty at your jury trial, you can petition to have your DNA sample destroyed and the results expunged. Here is the wording of the law:
“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 too, such as a felony charge was never filed after your arrest. Our criminal defense attorneys know all the law and can help you understand whether you can expunge your DNA sample.
