The bill makes changes and clarifications to the juvenile record
expungement provisions. The bill clarifies which dismissals and

alternative dispositions are eligible for automatic expungement. The bill
allows expungement of a diversion record without filing a case and
allows a victim an opportunity to object. The bill clarifies when a
sentence is complete, which triggers the expungement process. Under
current law, a class 1 misdemeanor sex offense can be expunged. The bill
allows class 2 and class 3 misdemeanor sex offenses to be expunged. The
bill requires the juvenile court to determine whether a juvenile who has
his or her record expunged for a sex offense should have a continuing
duty to register as a sex offender. The bill clarifies to whom the notice of
expungement needs to be sent so that only the agencies with the records
receive the notice.
The bill makes clear that juvenile record expungement applies in
municipal court by creating a new section for municipal court
