BILL
To

Establish a Formal Process for the Removal of Criminal Records​

The people of the Commonwealth of Redmont, through their elected Representatives in the Congress and the force of law ordained to that Congress by the people through the constitution, do hereby enact the following provisions into law:

1 - Short Title and Enactment
(1) This Act may be cited as the “Expungement Act”
(2) This Act shall be enacted immediately upon its signage.

2 - Purpose
(1) As of currently there is no process in which a player may have their criminal records deleted, even after months of good behaviour.
(2) This bill establishes a process for good behaviour citizens to be able to remove their criminal records.
(3) This bill was requested by the Attorney General.

3 - Eligibility
(1) Expungement is defined as the process in which a good behaviour citizen may request to have a criminal record removed.
(2) Any citizen may file for their criminal records to be removed via expungement, provided it has been at least 2 months since they have been charged with a crime.
(3) Expungement can apply to any charge, with the exception of government offences, such as, but not limited to, corruption and electoral fraud.

4 - Process
1. Any citizen who qualifies may bring their request to the courts, following such process:
(a) The citizen will file an Expungement Request to the Court, to be presided over by a Judge.
(b) The Attorney General, or State’s legal equivalency, will then be called to answer as to whether they meet the criteria or not.
(c) The Judge will then determine a verdict on such a request with the State’s consent.

2. If the respective Judge agrees with the request of the citizen, and has the consent of the State, they may order the Department of Justice to delete such criminal record(s).
