Idaho Enacts "The Clean Slate Act"
Tags : Criminal Screening
Taking effect on January 1, 2024, the new law protects criminal history records from disclosure under specific conditions and circumstances.
Idaho's amended law (House Bill 149) affords individuals the petitioning right to have relatively minor non-violent, non-sexual offenses sealed from public records, provided at least five years has passed since sentence completion and no subsequent offenses have been committed. Only one offense (or offenses arising from a single incident) would be eligible for sealing.
In the event of subsequent felony convictions, exemption from disclosure would be revoked. The legal costs associated with petitioning the court is the responsibility of the individual seeking the seal.
