Gov. Signs Julie’s Law
State Sen. Jonathan
Nichols said cold cases involving some of
the worst crimes in Oklahoma will now have a
better chance of being solved. Nichols praised
Gov. Brad Henry for signing Senate Bill 1102,
also known as “Julie’s Law”
on Wednesday. The legislation, written by Nichols,
R-Norman, would add new misdemeanor crimes to
those that can result in the harvesting of DNA.
The DNA would only be collected upon conviction
of those crimes.
