ABSTRACT
The article discusses potential Fourth Amendment challenges to DNA sample collection from arrestees. According to the article, under modern Supreme Court precedent, the complicating factors to compulsory DNA collection from arrestees include reasonable expectation of privacy and the totality of the circumstances balancing test. The extent by which these arguments are pursued in future cases will definitely influence the court's interpretation of the Fourth Amendment.
