Short description: 
CRIM ID-EXPUNGE                                                            

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Criminal Identification Act.  Provides  for  automatic      
   expungement  and  sealing  of  certain  arrest  and conviction records      
   without the filing of a  petition  to  a  court.   Provides  that  the      
   arrest,  conviction,  and  court  records  of  a  person  who has been      
   convicted of a misdemeanor are expunged and sealed after completion of      
   his or her sentence, provided that the person has not  been  convicted      
   of  a  felony  or  misdemeanor  within the previous 2 years, excluding      
   non-DUI traffic violations and any time served in jail by  the  person      
   and   included   as   a  part  of  the  original  sentence.  Effective      
          FISCAL NOTE (Illinois Courts Administrative Office)                  
          HB 4096 would have a limited fiscal impact on the judicial           
          branch at the State level, but compliance with its provisions        
          would impose significant new costs on the circuit courts. It         
          is not possible to provide a dollar estimate of the fiscal           
          impact of HB 4096, because the number of records affected is         
          not known and procedures would need to be developed to               
          implement the legislation.                                           
          JUDICIAL NOTE (Illinois Courts Administrative Office)                
          HB 4096 would increase judicial workloads. However, it is not        
          anticipated that the bill would increase the number of judges        
          needed in the State.                                                 
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Provides that the court must conduct  a  hearing  2  years  after      
   completion  of the person's sentence to determine whether the person's      
   records are eligible for expungement (rather than requiring the  court      
   to immediately expunge the records).                                        
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                              
          There would be no fiscal impact or impact on the corrections         
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                        
          Same as DOC fiscal note.
