SENATOR  HOLLIS  FRENCH,  SPONSOR,   discussed  SB  110.  He                                                                    
explained  that  the  proposed  legislation  addresses  post                                                                    
conviction   Deoxyribonucleic   Acid   (DNA)   testing.   He                                                                    
commended his  Chief of staff,  Cindy Smith who  initiated a                                                                    
series  of events  allowing for  provisions that  move crime                                                                    
bills through  the process. The  governor introduced  a bill                                                                    
this  year  with  similar  issues  in  respect  to  evidence                                                                    
preservation. The  DNA provisions  from the  governor's bill

regarding  evidence  preservation.  In the  past  rural  law                                                                    
enforcement agencies were tasked  with storing large amounts                                                                    
of  evidence. With  SB 110,  an  agency is  not required  to

impracticable, the bill asks the  agency to grab those small                                                                    
portions of  biological evidence that  may be useful  in the

a  limit with  respect to  the  amount of  time evidence  is

Senator French  discussed provisions on post  conviction DNA

Federal post  conviction DNA statutes, which  were passed in

Representative  Gara spoke  to the  amendment. He  explained                                                                    
one outstanding  issue on Page  8, Line 19 addressed  by the                                                                    
amendment. This section of the  bill states that if a person

the person will  no longer be in jail. He  wished to prevent                                                                    
any additional road  blocks for an innocent  person. The DNA

then an  innocent person  charged on  misidentification, who

attorney,  will not  be  eligible for  the  benefits of  DNA

amendment would prove necessary.

Ms. McLean  noted that  a balance  must be  obtained between

testing and those who might use  the new law to perpetrate a                                                                    
fraud  on the  court.  Normally in  self  defense cases  the                                                                    
defendant would testify  that he acted in  self defense. She                                                                    
added that if a defendant had  a lawyer that talked him into                                                                    
a fraudulent plea, then he has  an opportunity to file for a                                                                    
petition  for   a  post  conviction  relief   based  on  the

Representative  Gara clarified  that all  circumstances must                                                                    
be  covered  to truly  achieve  a  balance. He  argued  that                                                                    
balance is impossible if a person cannot use DNA evidence.

General  Sullivan responded  that the  bill does  comprise a

Representative Doogan  understood that  if a person  chose a

how  amendment one  would negatively  affect  any person  or

that the  person on  trial does  not pay  the price  in this

Mr. Svobodny stated that he  was a prior public defender and                                                                    
he never advised a person to  run a defense that was untrue.                                                                    
He  recalled instances  where a  defendant  requested a  new

the story  provided by the  defendant. He believed  that the                                                                    
courts  should  strive  to  tell the  truth  as  opposed  to

Representative Doogan stated that  the goal of the amendment                                                                    
is  to prove  innocence and  tell the  truth. He  noted that                                                                    
without  this, prosecutors  will return  to court  and allow                                                                    
for  further  DNA  testing.  He  cited  that  the  DNA  test
