         (1) A person arrested after June 30, 2008.
        
(1) (2) A person convicted of a felony under IC 35-42 (offenses against the person) or IC 35-43-2-1 (burglary):
            (A) after June 30, 1996, whether or not the person is sentenced to a term of imprisonment; or
            (B) before July 1, 1996, if the person is held in jail or prison on or after July 1, 1996.
        (2) (3) A person convicted of a criminal law in effect before October 1, 1977, that penalized an act substantially similar to a felony described in IC 35-42 or IC 35-43-2-1 or that would have been an included offense of a felony described in IC 35-42 or IC 35-43-2-1 if the felony had been in effect:
            (A) after June 30, 1998, whether or not the person is sentenced to a term of imprisonment; or
            (B) before July 1, 1998, if the person is held in jail or prison on or after July 1, 1998.

        (2) county sheriff or the designee of the county sheriff if the offender is held in a county jail or other county penal facility, placed in a community corrections program (as defined in IC 35-38-2.6-2), or placed on probation, or released on bond; or
        (3) agency that supervises the person, or the agency's designee, if the person is on conditional release in accordance with IC 35-38-1-27.
A person is not required to submit a blood sample if doing so would present a substantial and an unreasonable risk to the person's health.

SOURCE: IC 35-38-1-27; (08)IN0261.1.2. -->     SECTION 2. IC 35-38-1-27, AS ADDED BY P.L.173-2006, SECTION 22, IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2008]: Sec. 27. (a) If a court imposes a sentence that does not involve a commitment to the department of correction, the court shall require a person:
        (1) convicted of an offense who is described in IC 10-13-6-10; IC 10-13-6-10(a); and
        (2) who has not previously provided a DNA sample in accordance with IC 10-13-6;
to provide a DNA sample as a condition of the sentence.
    (b) If a person described in subsection (a) is confined at the time of sentencing, the court shall order the person to provide a DNA sample immediately after sentencing.
    (c) If a person described in subsection (a) is not confined at the time of sentencing, the agency supervising the person after sentencing shall establish the date, time, and location for the person to provide a DNA

sample. However, the supervising agency must require that the DNA sample be provided not more than seven (7) days after sentencing. A supervising agency's failure to obtain a DNA sample not more than seven (7) days after sentencing does not permit a person required to provide a DNA sample to challenge the requirement that the person provide a DNA sample at a later date.
    (d) A person's failure to provide a DNA sample is grounds for revocation of the person's probation, community corrections placement, or other conditional release.
