Under current law, a defendant may petition a court to have a
municipal offense or petty offense sealed if the person was not charged
or convicted of another crime within 3 years after the discharge of the
municipal or petty offense. The bill allows sealing if the person had a
single nonfelony conviction that did not involve domestic violence,
unlawful sexual behavior, or child abuse during that 3-year period and no
other convictions for 10 years after the subsequent offense.
