SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

DNA analysis upon conviction of certain Class 1 misdemeanors. Requires every person convicted of certain offenses under Title 18.2 that are punishable as Class 1 misdemeanors to have a sample of his blood, saliva, or tissue taken for DNA analysis. The bill also requires such sample be taken from every juvenile convicted of or adjudicated delinquent of any of three misdemeanor sex offenses: (i) § 18.2-67.4 (sexual battery), (ii) subsection C of § 18.2-67.5 (attempt to commit sexual battery), and (iii) § 18.2-130 (peeping). Under current law, a sample is not taken for DNA analysis from juveniles convicted or adjudicated delinquent of any misdemeanor offenses and is taken from adults convicted of only five misdemeanor sex offenses: (a) § 18.2-67.4, (b) § 18.2-67.4:2 (sexual abuse of a child 13 years of age or older but under 15), (c) subsection C of § 18.2-67.5, (d) § 18.2-130, or (e) § 18.2-370.6 (penetrating the mouth of a child under 13 with the tongue). The provisions of the bill apply only to persons convicted or juveniles adjudicated delinquent on or after July 1, 2015. This bill was incorporated into HB 1928.
