Expungement

The House Courts and Criminal Code Committee heard SB 255 sponsored by Rep. J. Young regarding expungements. The author, Sen. Freeman, introduced the bill which specifies that a “criminal history provider” includes certain persons who regularly publish criminal history information on the internet, for purposes of the law requiring criminal history providers to periodically review their criminal history records for expunged convictions.

The Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council and the Indiana Public Defender Council testified in support of the bill.  The bill passed 11-0.
