‘A Second Chance For First Time Non-Violent Federal Offenders’

Thanks once more to one and all who are supporting this bill!

H.R.1529

Second Chance for Ex-Offenders Act of 2009 – Amends the federal criminal code to allow an individual to file a petition for expungement of a record of conviction for a nonviolent criminal offense if such individual has:

(1) never been convicted of a violent offense and has never been convicted of a nonviolent offense other than the one for which expungement is sought;
(2) fulfilled all requirements of the sentence of the court in which conviction was obtained;
(3) remained free from dependency on or abuse of alcohol or a controlled substance for a minimum of one year and has been rehabilitated, to the court's satisfaction, if so required by the terms of supervised release;
(4) obtained a high school diploma or completed a high school equivalency program; and
(5) completed at least one year of community service.
