Default Expungement of criminal records bill passed

H 3209 Expungement of criminal records

The South Carolina General Assembly voted to override Governor McMaster's veto and pass the expungement bill.

Here's a summary of the bill that will go into effect six months after the governor signs the bill.

SECTION 4. Article 11, Chapter 5, Title 22 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:

(B) Following a first offense conviction for possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance under Article 3, Chapter 53, Title 44, the defendant after twenty years from the date of the completion of any sentence, including probation and parole, for a drug conviction or any felony conviction may apply, or cause someone acting on his behalf to apply, to the circuit court for an order expunging the records of the arrest and conviction and any associated bench warrant.

....20 years?? Wow. IMHO, that's just a tad bit extreme

Trust me when I say, they didn't want to offer many of these offenses relief and these "tough on crime" advocates aren't making it easier. This is a major step forward here.
