After decades of searching, Joseph James DeAngelo, whom authorities suspect is the so-called Golden State Killer or East Area Rapist, was arrested and suspected of committing a dozen murders and 50 rapes from 1976 to 1984. Prosecutors and law enforcement praised new DNA techniques used to catch the suspect, while defense attorneys and DNA experts voiced concern over the privacy and ethical concerns over customer data.
On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, hosts Bob Ambrogi and Craig Williams join attorney Bicka Barlow from the Law Office of Bicka Barlow, and Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, as they take a look at the Golden State Killer. They discuss the latest DNA techniques used in cases, the controversy over tracking down alleged perpetrators through genealogy websites, law enforcement's vantage point, the investigation process, and privacy and ethical concerns over data.
