Post sentence or supervision DNA demand

Post sentence or supervision DNA demand

Effective August 1, 2010

Provides that in cases where the offender’s sentence or supervision has expired, the prosecutor can petition the court to issue an order to show cause why an offender who should have been ordered or required to provide a biological specimen under this section but did not, should not now be ordered to provide one for the purposes of DNA analysis.

In other words - even when the person has served their time and completed supervision - the Court can order them to provide a DNA sample unless the person can give a reason why they shouldn't have to.

Section 1. Minnesota Statutes 2008, section 609.117, is amended by adding a
subdivision to read:
Subd. 4. After supervision expires. (a) Upon motion of a prosecuting authority, a
court shall issue an order to show cause why an offender who should have been ordered or
required to provide a biological specimen under this section but did not, should not now
be ordered to provide one for the purposes of DNA analysis. This subdivision applies if
the offender's sentence or supervision has expired. The prosecuting authority shall provide
the court with an affidavit that:
(1) identifies the offender by name and date of birth;
(2) identifies the offender's last known address;
(3) identifies the offender's charged offense, offense of conviction, and date of
conviction; and
(4) indicates that the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension database of biological
specimens has been searched and the offender has not previously provided a biological
specimen for DNA analysis under this chapter.
(b) The order to show cause shall direct the offender to appear before the court
within 30 days after the order is served. The prosecutor shall serve the order to show
cause upon the offender in the same manner as a civil summons. The offender may avoid
appearing before the court by appearing at a place and time designated in the order and
voluntarily providing the specimen.
(c) Upon the offender's appearance before the court, and after an opportunity to be
heard, the court may issue an order directing the offender to provide the specimen.
(d) If the offender has failed to provide the specimen or appear before the court and
the prosecuting authority makes a sufficient showing that the offender was properly served
with the order to show cause, the court may issue an order:
(1) requiring the offender to submit the specimen within 30 days from the date of
the order at a designated location;
(2) including the designated location's address, telephone number, and regular
hours of operation; and
(3) authorizing, if the offender fails or refuses to comply with the order to provide
a specimen, a peace officer to detain and bring the offender before the court as soon as
practicable to show cause why the specimen should not be obtained.
(e) The local corrections authority shall mail the order in paragraph (d) to the
offender's last known address.

First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I'd
like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to
know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
I've had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
Thank you!

Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you're working
with? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and
I ended up losing months of hard work due to no data backup.
Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
