Bill expands last year’s good work on juvenile records
Please join The Children’s Campaign in thanking Sen. Steube (R-Sarasota) for sponsoring SB 118.
This newly filed bill expands on last session’s legislation, championed by The Children’s Campaign, which prevents youthful mistakes from hurting kids’ chances for jobs, educational opportunities, housing and more.
SB 118 establishes penalties if individuals or entities publish or display expunged criminal records. These punishments include fines, court fees, or even website suspension if they refuses to remove the information. This will keep private companies from exploiting photos and information about juveniles after their records are legally removed.
