DNA Specimens in Felony Cases

Question: If I plead guilty to a felony in Illinois, will the government collect my DNA?

Answer: Yes. A judge will order you to provide a DNA specimen. The specimen will be analyzed and the results stored in a database. The database is a tool that the police use to solve crimes (.pdf).
