The Saturday Podcast – Inadvertent DNA



 

DNA022415-800x500In Maryland, the High Court rules that a man who sweated on a chair and was convicted of rape based on that DNA sample, which he declined to give voluntarily. Does this mean that we have to wear clean suits everywhere from now on? The two conditions the Court says are necessary to satisfy the 4th Amendment. What lessons are there for us based on the idea that inadvertently shed DNA is now open game for Law Enforcement?
