Can I Have my DNA Destroyed If My Conviction Was Expunged?

If the purpose of “expungement” is to restore one’s criminal history to the same status as before the conviction, shouldn’t one’s DNA record also be removed if the DNA was collected upon conviction? It seems to make sense. After all, there is a record of one’s DNA in California Department of Justice DNA and Forensic Identification Database and Data Bank Program under Penal Code § 296. Should not the DNA be destroyed and the
record of it be deleted? To find out if this does happen, click on the following link.
