Prior to being taken into custody and being charged with a crime, you can not be forced to give fingerprints. Merely being accused, without be arrested and charged, is not enough to force the printing.
After arrest, however, you can be compelled to give your fingerprints as incidental to the arrest.If (and only if) you are completely satisfied that your question is answered, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.
