dna if somebody is arrested. in training video shows how police take dna from a swab inside the mouth. the supreme court upheld the law from maryland which allows dna to be taken after an arrest for a violent felony after the suspect has been in front of a judge. brad is a law professor at santa clara university. >> but the ruling was fairly broad because what it basically said was anyone who is arrested already has a diminished expectation of privacy. and the government's interest in having dna samples is significant enough to outweigh whatever minor intrusion in the court's thinking on privacy of taking this dna sample. >> reporter: but california's law in effect since 2009 is much more broad and allows police to take and enter dna samples into criminal databases even if charges are later dropped. >> we believe that innocent americans should not have their
6:01 pm
genetic blueprint in a giant government criminal database. >> reporter: an attorney with the aclu of northern california, currently in litigation to try to block california's law. >> in california, on the other hand, we have a law that requires people arrested not convicted of laws like simple drug possession of joyriding, of writing a bad check, they have to give dna in california. is that a serious offense as the supreme court defines it? it's impossible to know at this point. >> reporter: richard believes california's law is still subject to challenge. >> it certainly upholds some aspects of california's law but doesn't really allow the police to seize and analyze the dna sample from somebody arrested for simple drug possession never charged or goes in front of a drug. we don't think it does. >> reporter: but the professor says he believes many state laws even broad ones like
6:02 pm
california's are likely to be upheld. >> practically speaking, i think any law like this including california's is now permissible. >> reporter: many states are expected to actually establish laws now that permit dna after somebody is arrested now that the supreme court has given its constitutional blessing. back to you. >> but mark, there is a lawsuit challenging the 2009 california law. where do we stand on that? >> reporter: well, that is a good question. the aclu actually lost a challenge before a federal district judge. they went to the ninth circuit to a three-judge panel. they also ruled against the aclu. but then the court said we are going to have nine judges hear this, the full panel. they had oral arguments but then decided we're not going to issue a ruling because we want to see what the u.s. supreme court does. now that the supreme court has ruled the ninth circuit can do what it wants, ask for more briefs, simply issue a ruling, have more oral arguments. it's anyone's guess and there's no timeline. >> thank you. oakland sideshows are
6:03 pm
getting out of hand. just hours ago, oakland's police chief announced the department's strategy to end the dangerous events. kpix 5's ann notarangelo was at the meeting and joins us from the oakland police department. ann. >> reporter: elizabeth, there have been dozens of sideshows just this year in east oakland alone. and the police chief admits his department has been slow to respond for calls for help but says starting this weekend that's going to change. saturday, a 25-year-old woman was gravely wounded when she and two others were shot while watching a sideshow in east oakland about 2:30 a.m. this youtube video says it was taken that night. two men suffered nonlife- threatening injuries but the woman from walnut creek remains in critical condition. >> sideshows are intricately related with violent crime. the groups that attend these things are groups involved in the violent crime. >> reporter: oakland's police chief says starting this weekend, he will redirect the department's resources and along with the chp will place
6:04 pm
officers in areas known for sideshows and they will interfere and interrupt these illegal car shows. residents have told us in the past, police haven't shown up when called. the chief agreed to a point. >> well, we don't respond timely and that's due to our staffing that we have on friday and saturday nights. >> reporter: another video posted on youtube shows a sideshow in january in broad daylight that stopped traffic on 880. sideshows have been part of east oakland culture for 20 years. in 2010, the police department suppressed most of the activity. but it has started to pick up. >> it's a courting ritual. it's a place for young men and women to get together and be seen. >> reporter: because of this, the community group "youth uprising" will discuss maybe staying open later so that young people have a safer monitored place to meet. this weekend the violence heated up and warmer temperatures are on the way. >> the violence obviously adds to the urgency of it. we can't afford tore it to grow
6:05 pm
anymore and we want to head this off quickly. >> reporter: oakland police can't add officers to the ranks so they will shift them from the crime response teams and put them with the regular patrol officers, who are already out on friday and saturday night. >> what sort of laws are they talking about specifically enforcing? >> you know, they are actually just regular traffic laws things like speed, reckless driving, they are going to remind people you cannot drive on a sidewalk, loud music, some of those infractions carry heavy penalties and so hopefully that will discourage people. >> thank you. a san jose lawmaker is urging police to reach out for help calming the surge in gang violence. there were five murders in san jose last week alone. assemblywoman norah campos says that the police department is stretched too thin to handle this spike in violence without some help. she is calling on acting chief larry esquivel to ask for extra support from the chp. the department says it has no plans to do that right now.
6:06 pm
campos made a similar request of then chief chris moore after a another rash of homicides last year. moore also declined. it's taken nearly 4 years and hundreds of prospective jurors. but two men accused in a gang- rape on a richmond teen are finally going to trial. kpix 5's don knapp is at the courthouse where both sides have begun laying out their arguments in this emotional case. >> reporter: the prosecution opened its case with very graphic descriptions of violent crime that occurred at that rape scene 3 1/2 years. but the defendant was discussed much. the prosecutor said that there was a great deal of dna evidence at the scene and suggested that perhaps the dna evidence would show marcelles peter's extensive involvement. it doesn't seem enough to call the october 2009 assault on the 15-year-old richmond high
6:07 pm
school student brutal. for more than two hours the intoxicated girl was robbed, beaten and raped in a dark corner of campus as others watched, laughed and took cell phone pictures. today the prosecution opened its case against one of the alleged assailants marcelles peter with explicit statements. >> she was very drunk. she was naked. she was vomiting. she had suffered serious head and face trauma, she had a concussion and cuts and scrapes from being beaten and dragged. she was cold and naked. she was covered in urine, booze and dirt and genetic material in the form of semen. >> reporter: prosecutor john cope says as many as 20 men may have raped jane doe. 7 were identified and charged. the charges against a 15-year- old boy were dropped. two others too plea deals and received 27 and 32 years in prison and two more are expected to go on trial in august. the attorney for marcelles
6:08 pm
peter speaking to the jury asked them to evaluate witnesses for reliability, questioning the value of semen evidence that could be contaminated from a condom blowing around in the wind and reminded jurors that allegations have to have evidence to support them. tomorrow they open the case against the co-defendant jose montano tomorrow. >> there are two separate juries in this trial. why is that? >> reporter: i have never seen it before. it's very curious. we understand it's because there are two defendants in this case. and they have separate representation. in some cases, statements that were ruled inadmissible in one case are admissible in another. so when those statements coming up, one jury will leave the room and the other jury will hear it. when statements are good for both of them, then both juries are in the room. it's an unusual situation but i'm sure it will be efficient. >> it's complicated. thank you, don. new at 6:00, a judge today sentenced this man to life in prison for murdering a google job applicant three years ago. 26-year-old george huggins says
