Changes made to expungement wording in Colorado’s ‘Katie’s Law’

Everyone makes mistakes, but that does not mean those mistakes should haunt a person forever. Thankfully, under Florida DUI law, qualifying crimes can be expunged from a person’s record. When a record is expunged, the information is legally destroyed, so details regarding Florida criminal charges cannot be accessed for general law enforcement use.

In some situations, information on a person’s file – even if they are not convicted – could be used against them in other situations. One example is with the way “Katie’s Law” is currently worded. Thankfully, a new change in the bill will fix the mistake in the original wording.
