Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that authorizes courts to expunge a criminal record related to an offense that resulted from being a victim of human trafficking.

Highlights:

 

  • Authorizes individuals convicted of certain prostitution-related offenses to apply for the expungement of records related to the offenses if they committed the offenses because they were a victim of human trafficking (Sec. 1).

  • Exempts a conviction of murder or rape (Sec. 1).

  • Authorizes a victim of human trafficking who is found not guilty of an offense or who is the defendant named in a dismissed criminal charge to apply for a court order to expunge the individual’s records in the case (Sec. 1).

  • Requires, as a condition of granting the expungement, that the court find that the victim’s interest in having the records expunged is not outweighed by government’s need to maintain such records (Sec. 1).

  • Authorizes intervention in lieu of conviction (ILC) for individuals charged with committing an offense while being a victim of compelled prostitution (Sec. 1).
