LIFE IN BLUE VIRGINIA: Expunging records of convicted felons

HB32 allows a person convicted of a misdemeanor or nonviolent felony to file a petition requesting expungement of the police and court records relating to the conviction if such person has (i) been free from any term of incarceration, probation, and postrelease supervision imposed as a result of such conviction for at least eight years, (ii) no prior or subsequent convictions other than traffic infractions, and (iii) no pending criminal proceeding.

If enacted, convicted criminals will pass “universal background checks” when making a firearm purchase!
