Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Criminal Identification Act. Allows a person to petition the court and the court to order the sealing of Class 2, 3, and 4 felony conviction records 4 years after termination of the person's last sentence, unless the offense is a: (1) sex offense; (2) DUI; (3) reckless driving; (4) violation of an order of protection; (5) dog fighting; (6) crime of violence as defined in the Crime Victim Compensation Act; or (7) an offense that that requires registration under the Sex Offender Registration Act. Current law limits the sealing of felony conviction records to Class 4 felony convictions for possession of cannabis, possession of a controlled substance, Methamphetamine Precursor Control Act, Steroid Control Act, and prostitution. Requires a person petitioning to seal a drug offense to pass a drug test within the 30 days preceding the filing of the petition to seal.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Specifies the particular Class 2, 3, and 4 felony offense convictions that may be sealed (rather than any Class 2, 3, and 4 felony not otherwise excluded by the expungement and sealing provisions of the Criminal Identification Act).
