Lt. Governor In Utica To Support Expanded DNA Database

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) – Local elected officials and law enforcement leaders in Oneida County are supporting Governor Cuomo’s plan to expanded the DNA database.

His plan would now require anyone convicted of a misdemeanor to submit a DNA sample.

Lt. Governor Robert Duffy joined local official in Utica Thursday to tout the benefits.

“As a former police officer I could not think if anything more egregious than to have somebody in prison for 20 or 30 years of their life for something they did not do. It is great in terms of certainty, I think it brings justice to the system,” Duffy said.

If enacted, Cuomo’s plan would take effect in October. It would not apply to children involved in Family Court, or youthful offenders.
