Recently I posted that the Florida House and Senate passed a bill to help clear wrongfully accused individuals records. The Governor signed SB 118 into law. Starting July 1, 2018, yes that is 2018, this law will take effect.
Highlights of the law include prevention of any entity in the business of publishing arrest booking photos from charging a fee to have the photograph removed. Removal shall be done within 10 calendar days. The law will also allow administrative sealing on criminal history pertaining to an arrest where the state declined to file, or entered a nolle prose (dismissal).
