DNA samples are collected from all adults arrested for felonies. Your DNA profile will be entered into the Colorado Bureau of Investigations (CBI) DNA database once a person is charged with a felony. Under certain conditions, the person may apply to have their DNA sample removed. The removal of a DNA sample from the DNA database is called “expungement”. The record sealing attorneys at Schwartz and Waible can help you expunge your DNA sample from the CBI database if the following circumstances apply.
1. Samples on file where the charges were dismissed, the case was acquitted, or the conviction for the offense was not a felony. This requires a final court order proving that there was no felony conviction in your case.
2. Samples collected where no charges are filed or a felony charge was not filed within ninety days of arrest.
