Bill Summary

Under current law, a defendant may petition a court to have a municipal offense or petty offense sealed if the person was not charged or convicted of another crime within 3 years after the discharge of the municipal or petty offense. The bill allows sealing of a municipal offense that did not involve domestic violence or a petty offense if the person had a single nonfelony conviction that did not involve domestic violence, unlawful sexual behavior, or child abuse during that 3-year period and no other convictions for 10 years after the subsequent offense.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
