Current Bill Summary

SB 344 - This act creates a process to expunge the criminal records of persons who have pled guilty to, or been convicted of, the offense of prostitution while under the influence of an agent. The act provides that requests for expungement for the offense of prostitution are not subject to the requirements of most other such requests, including any time requirements or provisions regarding ineligibility in the case of additional subsequent arrests, convictions, or pleas of guilty. The act provides that, upon the determination of the Court that the person was acting under the influence of an agent when he or she committed the offense of prostitution, the person's criminal record relating to the offense of prostitution shall be expunged.

This act is identical to a provision of SCS/SB 341 (2017).
