Law Named after New Mexico State University Student Awaits President’s Signature

The gruesome murder of NMSU Student Katie Sepich rocked the City of Las Cruces in 2003.  Current governor, Suzanna Martinez was the prosecutor in the case. 

Interesting fact was that the killer was identified through DNA Evidence.  The New Mexico Congressional Delegation has pushed for a national law to collect DNA from “people arrested or charged with serious crimes.”

The US Congress has approved “Katie’s Law,” and President Obama is expected to sign it soon.

C Lloyd-I'm not sure of the specifics of this law, but it could be the cause of lots of trouble. While I think those convicted should be subjected to having their DNA on file, to just be charged and have your DNA on file seems unreasonable to me. Unless the DNA file is removed if the case is thrown out, dismissed, or the individual is found not guilty.

Good Morning Wayne

 

Let me hope that you had a great holiday season.  May 2013 be filled with Joy and prosperity for you and your family.  

Regarging this law, it is a bit worrisome to me also.  I think it will be challenged in the courts...which will eventually allow for the appropriate modifications.
