Relief From Criminal Collateral Consequences
Collateral relief from effects of conviction - timing - criminal history record check. Current law has separate collateral relief sections for when a court orders an alternative sentence, probation, or community corrections. The act combines collateral relief provisions into one section and authorizes a court to enter an order for collateral relief at the time of conviction of a defendant or any time thereafter. The act requires a fingerprint-based criminal history record check only if the hearing is held after sentencing.
The act adds the authority for a juvenile court to enter an order for collateral relief using the same process as criminal courts.
