Professor Henry T. "Hank" Greely is quoted in The Inquirer in an article that discusses the use of DNA from family members to find criminals:

Stanford University law professor, Hank Greely, noted "There is kind of a queasiness about having the sins of your father come back to haunt you," and that bulldozing family privacy because of a possible genetic relationship to an unknown suspect “feels like we're holding people responsible for the crimes of their family."
