D.D.C.: Under Md. v. King, govt needn’t show actual need for DNA of already arrested person

The government moved for DNA by buccal swab from four defendants, and it does not have to show a need for genetic testing under Maryland v. King. United States v. Proctor, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 16618 (D.D.C. Feb. 2, 2017).

Defendant was stopped because of a 911 call about a threat he made about using an “AR.” The police had probable cause for an automobile exception search. Alternatively, it would have been valid under inventory. United States v. Ervin, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 15535 (M.D. Tenn. Feb. 3, 2017).*

The safety sweep of defendant’s property was justified and had no effect on the subsequent search warrant, even if the sweep was unlawful, which it wasn’t. Parks v. State, 2017 Miss. App. LEXIS 58 (Feb. 7, 2017).*
