Podcast: DNA, genealogical websites and privacy

DNADNA posted on a genealogical website helped investigators finally track down the man they believe is the Golden State Killer. While prosecutors and law enforcement personnel are praising the ways new DNA techniques can help identify suspects, defense attorneys and DNA experts say they’re concerned over privacy and ethical questions that have been raised. In this Lawyer 2 Lawyer podcast from Legal Talk Network, hosts Bob Ambrogi and Craig Williams talk to DNA attorney Bicka Barlow and Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley and discuss the issues raised by genetic identification.
