Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Provides that all juvenile records which have not been expunged are sealed and may never be disclosed to the general public or otherwise made widely available. Provides that sealed records may be obtained only when their use is needed for good cause and with an order from the juvenile court, as required by those not authorized to retain them. Provides that a juvenile adjudication shall never be considered a conviction nor shall an adjudicated individual be considered a criminal. Provides that, unless expressly allowed by law, a juvenile adjudication shall not operate to impose upon the individual any of the civil disabilities ordinarily imposed by or resulting from conviction. Provides that adjudications shall not prejudice or disqualify the individual in any civil service application or appointment, from holding public office, or from receiving any license granted by public authority. Provides that the confidentiality provisions of the Act apply to law enforcement and municipal ordinance violations. Provides that willful violation of the confidentiality provisions of the Act is a Class B misdemeanor and each violation is subject to a fine of $1,000. Provides for various circumstances when juvenile records shall be expunged automatically without a petition brought by the individual and repeals provisions pertaining to those court procedures. Eliminates the requirement that a person be 21 years of age be eligible for expungement by petition. Provides that a person whose delinquency adjudications are not eligible for automatic expungement may petition the court to expunge all law enforcement records relating to any incidents occurring before his or her 18th birthday which did not result in proceedings in criminal court and all juvenile court records with respect to any adjudications (except those based upon first degree murder) if 2 years have elapsed since all juvenile court proceedings relating to him or her have been terminated and his or her commitment to the Department of Juvenile Justice under this Act has been terminated. Provides that applications for employment within the State must contain specific language that states that the applicant is not obligated to disclose expunged juvenile records of adjudication or arrest. Provides that local law enforcement agencies shall send written notice to the minor of the expungement of any records within 60 days of automatic expungement or the date of service of an expungement order. Defines "dissemination" and "juvenile court record". Makes other changes.

House Floor Amendment No. 3
Clarifies that unless otherwise allowed by law, juvenile adjudications shall not prejudice or disqualify the individual in any civil service application or appointment, from holding public office, or from receiving any license granted by public authority. Provides that nothing in the expungement of juvenile law enforcement and court records provisions shall require the physical destruction of the internal office records, files, or databases maintained by the Office of the Secretary of State. Changes automatic expungement of records from being executed within 5 business days to 60 business days. Excludes a specific list of forcible felony type offenses from the automatic expungement provisions. Restores current law that an expungement of records on an offense for which the person was adjudicated delinquent which is sought upon termination of juvenile court proceedings is limited to a Class B misdemeanor, Class C misdemeanor, petty offense, or business offense. Provides records of an offense under the sex offense Article of the Criminal Code is precluded from expungement if the person is required to register under the Sex Offender Registration Act.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds the offenses of dismembering a human body, inducement to commit suicide, reckless discharge of a firearm, gunrunning, firearms trafficking, possession of a stolen firearm, and aggravated possession of a stolen firearm to the list of forcible felony type offenses excluded from the automatic expungement provisions.
