Relief From Criminal Collateral Consequences

Concerning relief from collateral consequences of criminal actions.
2018 Regular Session
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Bill Summary

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.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
