DNA Expungement Policies and Procedures Manual
To implement the legal requirements of the DNA Fingerprint, Unsolved Crime and Innocence Protection Act (Proposition 69), which was passed in November 2004, CCJCC established the Proposition 69 Implementation Task Force as a subcommittee.
The subcommittee coordinated countywide efforts to implement Proposition 69. This requires the collection of DNA samples from all convicted felons and from adults and juveniles arrested for or charged with specified crimes. As of January 2009, all adults arrested for or charged with any felony are also required to provide a DNA sample. Proposition 69 specifies procedures for confidentiality and, where applicable, for expungement of samples. The link above provides a PDF version of the DNA Expungement Policies and Procedures Manual that was created by the task force and approved by CCJCC in November 2008.
With Proposition 69 implemented throughout Los Angeles County, the Proposition 69 Implementation Task Force recommended at its meeting on June 3, 2009 that it be disbanded and all remaining issues be incorporated into the DNA Task Force. At its meeting on June 17, 2009, CCJCC approved this recommendation.
