so they aren't actually found guilty, but charges are dropped for DNA, $75 fee, and classes and paying restitution. But they aren't GUILTY. They aren't even CHARGED. Sounds like a money making, traffic court type scheme. And the authorities get to build their DNA database

September 15, 2009

People arrested for nonviolent misdemeanor crimes in Orange County can now opt to give a sample of their DNA, along with a $75 processing fee, to the district attorney in exchange for their charges being dropped.

The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the resolution at Tuesdays meeting; Supervisor Janet Nguyen was not present.

People would be given the option to have their cases treated informally if they donated their DNA, he said, and they might be given the option of giving the sample along with attending classes and paying restitution so that charges are not filed.
