Wyoming Legislature Passes DNA Testing Bill

Posted: March 7, 2008 4:37 pm

A bill that would explicitly allow post-conviction DNA testing in Wyoming passed in the House today.  It already passed in the State Senate, so now it goes to Gov. Dave Freudenthal for his signature.

If the governor signs the bill, Wyoming would become the 43rd state with a statute explicitly granting post-conviction DNA testing that can resolve claims of guilt or innocence.
