Doug Gansler Responds to Maryland DNA Ruling

Doug Gansler joins us to discuss a recent Maryland Court of Appeals ruling striking down expanded DNA collection...

Three years ago, Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler championed a new law to expand the use of DNA by law enforcement agencies. Last month the Maryland Court of Appeals blocked a key provision of the DNA Collection Act -- allowing police to collect samples from suspects before they are charged. He joins us to discuss the short and long-term effects of the ruling.
