Non-Violent Crimes Expunged for Human Trafficking Victims

Non-Violent Crimes Expunged for Human Trafficking Victims

The Act allows non-violent crimes committed by victims of human trafficking to be expunged. Victims charged with non-violent offenses may make a motion in the court to expunge the offense after 60 days of being charged. If the court finds that the offense occurred because the individual was a victim of human trafficking the charges may be dismissed with prejudice.
