A bill that gives non-violent offenders a second chance has been signed into law by Governor Mike Pence.
Some misdemeanors and felonies can be erased from a person’s record after a set time period.
It’s all contingent on staying out of trouble during a probationary period.
It's called the Second Chance Bill. There are limits to the bill. There is a waiting period of at least five years after a sentence is completed. Sexual or violent crimes and a few others are not eligible to be expunged.
