If you are convicted of a felony in Massachusetts, you will have to provide a DNA sample to the Commonwealth. This DNA sample will then be entered into a DNA database where a search will take place to see if the DNA matches up against DNA recovered from unsolved crimes. At the present time in Massachusetts, you don’t have to provide DNA samples for:
- Misdemeanor convictions;
- Felony admissions that don’t result in convictions;
- Just being charged with a felony.
As a result, if you are charged with a felony in Massachusetts, contact the Worcester MA Attorneys who can help you understand what the collateral consequences of a felony conviction will be. Contact Shane W. Surrette today at (774) 364-4605 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
