Felons will pay for DNA testing

Lincoln Senator Bill Avery is arguing against claims that felons cannot afford to pay the 30 dollar fee in his bill that requires every inmate to pay to have their DNA taken. Some argued that it’s many felons are broke and their families are too poor to pick up the cost. Avery checked with the Department of Corrections.
“The minimum that they make per month is about $26, the maximum is about $83, so there is income there”
Some argued that it’s many felons are broke and their families are too poor to pick up the cost. Avery says they have other financial responsibilities and this cost of 30 dollars is much less than other fees.
