EXPUNGE PRIOR MARIJUANA ARRESTS BILL PROPOSED

By Bob Katzen

Bill (S 1075) allows the courts to expunge the criminal record of anyone who has been arrested, charged or convicted of possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

“People shouldn’t be unduly penalized for non-violent minor offenses that are now legal behaviors,” said the bill’s sponsor Sen. Jason Lewis (D-Winchester). “This legislation was written to provide an avenue for appropriate redress.”
