SB 4: Expand Expungement and Intervention


Senate Bill 4 was related to criminal justice reform and expungement laws for victims of human trafficking. Pursuant to this bill, human trafficking victims previously convicted of specified prostitution-related offenses (i.e., soliciting, loitering to engage in solicitation, etc.) were allowed to apply for expungement of related conviction records. Additionally, this bill permitted intervention in lieu of convictions for victims charged with a criminal offense, wherefore, the court would conduct a hearing to determine eligibility for intervention in lieu of conviction and recommend an appropriate intervention plan.
