Did you know that California has a DNA Bill of Rights for Sexual Assault Victims? I can be found in CA Penal Code 680 (full PDF version here). Although it does provide fairly broad discretion to the Cal. law enforcement agency investigating the sex crime, and is subject to "the commitment of sufficient resources to respond to information requests," it does provide the victim of a sexual assault with the right to the following information:
- The right to be informed whether or not a DNA profile of an assailant was procured through the rape kit evidence.
- Whether a DNA profile has been developed out of evidence obtained from a sexual assault examination.
- Whether or not there is a match between the DNA profile established by the rape kit evidence and a defendant accused of criminal sexual assault.
