DNA Testing Bill Advances In Legislature

(Carson City, NV)  —  A bill requiring DNA testing for those arrested on a felony is still alive.

The Assembly Judiciary Committee yesterday approved SB 243.  It’s known as “Brianna’s Law,” after a 19-year-old Reno woman who was sexually assaulted and killed in 2008.

Supporters say the law would have prevented the murder, because the man convicted in the crime had a previous felony arrest.

Before passing the bill, the committee limited DNA storage to three years instead of five years as the bill originally mandated.

A final vote from the Assembly is expected next week.
