Description

Certificate of relief from collateral criminal consequences. Creates a procedure whereby a person who has been convicted of certain crimes can petition the court for a certificate of relief that will remove collateral consequences of the conviction. Persons cannot petition for relief for violent crimes nor for crimes for which registration on the sex offender registry is required, must wait 12 months after the completion of all terms of sentencing and probation, and must not have any pending criminal charges. The court may limit the effect of the certificate of relief and it can be revoked if the person is subsequently convicted of a crime. Read the Bill »
