Expungement Act Amendments
This bill will allow for the automatic expungement of certain criminal histories after a set amount of time. The current process for expunging a criminal record can be extremely confusing, costly, and time consuming. A criminal history can also follow a person around for the rest of their life, affecting employment, housing options, loans, etc. After a person has served their time and paid their debt to society, the law shouldn’t continue to place heavy burdens on them. Allowing for automatic expungement will help people move on with their life and become successful contributing members of society.
