7 yrs ago I stole $49 from a buisness. Was charged was larceny from a person and they wern disabled or elderly. The state police are telling me I now need to give my DNA ( 7 yrs later) because this is a felony. I have always been led to believe that this is a misdemenior. And it is chapter 266 section 25 not section 30. Are they wrong or am I.
Im not part of any investigation but it is a new law in mass i believe. I no other people with felonys and we got the same letter. I no it didnt seem legal to me either but everyone recieved the same letter and the state police that everyone with a felony is now required to give DNA. And to top it off they want the DNA giver to pay $125.00. Thanks
The dna thing is capter 22e section 11. It is hard to understand. But id I was charged 7 yrs ago am i still obligated to give the dna?
