On February 26, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument in the case of Maryland v. King. In this special “Courthouse Steps” edition of Teleforum, our expert will attend oral argument and report to our listeners. In the state of Maryland, a rape and assault case rendered identifiable DNA material, but it did not match any existing samples in the DNA database. Alonzo King was subsequently arrested in an unrelated matter and, under Maryland’s DNA Collection Act, a DNA sample was collected from him and analyzed. King’s DNA sample matched the sample from the unrelated rape and assault case. The Court will decide whether this DNA sample can be used in his prosecution for that rape and assault.
