Eliminate Public Access to Juvenile Records

HB 293- Confidentiality of Juvenile Records, intended to close the loophole that now allows juvenile misdemeanor records to be public, has been signed into law by the Governor. This bill blocks those minor crimes from public view. It also gives law enforcement agencies the discretion not to post arrest and booking photos online. In the past five years, 62% of juvenile records have been publically available. Thanks to the sponsors, Rep. Pritchett (D-Broward) and Senator Soto (D-Orange) for their leadership on this important issue.
