Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Criminal Identification Act. Provides for automatic
expungement and sealing of certain arrest and conviction records
without the filing of a petition to a court. Provides that the
arrest, conviction, and court records of a person who has been
convicted of a misdemeanor are expunged and sealed after completion of
his or her sentence, provided that the person has not been convicted
of a felony or misdemeanor within the previous 2 years, excluding
non-DUI traffic violations and any time served in jail by the person
and included as a part of the original sentence. Effective
FISCAL NOTE (Illinois Courts Administrative Office)
HB 4096 would have a limited fiscal impact on the judicial
branch at the State level, but compliance with its provisions
would impose significant new costs on the circuit courts. It
is not possible to provide a dollar estimate of the fiscal
impact of HB 4096, because the number of records affected is
not known and procedures would need to be developed to
implement the legislation.
JUDICIAL NOTE (Illinois Courts Administrative Office)
HB 4096 would increase judicial workloads. However, it is not
anticipated that the bill would increase the number of judges
needed in the State.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Provides that the court must conduct a hearing 2 years after
completion of the person's sentence to determine whether the person's
records are eligible for expungement (rather than requiring the court
to immediately expunge the records).
FISCAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)
There would be no fiscal impact or impact on the corrections
CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)
Same as DOC fiscal note.
