Illinois Becomes First State to Require Testing of DNA Evidence in Sex Crimes

Illinois is now the first state in the country to require testing of DNA evidence from sex crimes. Their new law requires local police to submit rape kits collected from victims to state police for analysis. This must be done with 10 business days of the crime.

Attorney General Lisa Madigan said, “By using this DNA evidence we will be able to get sex offenders out of our communities and into prisons where they belong. Most importantly we will finally be pursuing justice for women and children who have been victims of this horrible and violent crime.”

It’s estimated more than four thousand rape kits are sitting untested in evidence rooms. Madigan says they could include vital DNA evidence to help prosecute offenders and exonerate others.

The other new law protects the confidentiality of statements victims make to rape crisis personnel. This new law passed the General Assembly unanimously and will go into effect January 1st, 2011.
