Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Provides that whenever a person has been arrested, charged, or adjudicated delinquent for an incident occurring before his or her 18th birthday that if committed by an adult would be an offense, the person may petition the court at any time for expungement of law enforcement records and juvenile court records relating to the incident and upon termination of all juvenile court proceedings relating to that incident, the court shall order the expungement of all records in the possession of the Department of State Police, the clerk of the circuit court, and law enforcement agencies relating to the incident, but only in any of the following circumstances: (1) the minor was arrested and no petition for delinquency was filed with the clerk of the circuit court; (2) the minor was charged with an offense and the petition or petitions were dismissed without a finding of delinquency; (3) the minor was charged with an offense and was found not delinquent of that offense; (4) the minor was placed under supervision, and the order of supervision has since been successfully terminated; or (5) the minor was adjudicated for an offense which would be a Class B misdemeanor, Class C misdemeanor, or a petty or business offense if committed by an adult. Provides that no objection may be filed to a petition under this provision.
