A federal appeals court is taking a second look at California's DNA collection law. Voters overwhelmingly approved the Proposition 69 law in 2004. The law allows police to collect DNA samples from anyone arrested for a felony, even if they haven't been convicted. The state has long collected DNA from convicted felons.
