Bill To Expunge Criminal Record Progresses

House Bill 1328, "Pardon/Expunction of Record", which I introduced on April 19, was reported favorably out of the House Judiciary I Committee yesterday and now goes to the full House for consideration. The fact that criminal records are not routinely expunged when a person is granted a pardon of innocence was illustrated by the Darryl Hunt case and was the impetus for this bill. It would clear the record of individuals who have been wrongfully charged and convicted of a crime.
