A second chance for felon minors PDF Print

Minors convicted of non-violent felonies could be given a second chance in a measure tentatively approved by the House this week.
Those who were under age eighteen when the crime was committed would get the chance to have that crime removed from their criminal records. The offender would have to go through a long process four years after completion of a prison term or probation that includes 100 hours of community service. A judge would make the decision to grant or reject the expunction, but prosecutors, police and crime victims would also get a chance to comment. A final House vote is expected this week.
