Summary as introduced:
Expungement of criminal records. Requires a circuit court to expunge an individual's existing arrest record, upon petition to the court, for acquittals, nolle prosequis, dismissals or pardons if the court finds that the arrest that the petitioner seeks to expunge resulted in any such disposition. Currently, it may do so only if expungement would avoid manifest injustice to the petitioner. The bill also provides that at the conclusion of any hearing upon a dismissal, acquittal or nolle prosequi that the court shall, upon motion by the defendant, grant a motion for expungement. Such expungement is currently limited to a dismissal pursuant to mistaken identity only.
