Young adults in Wisconsin might find it easier to get jobs in a new bill to change the way their criminal records are handled. State Representatives Evan Goyke and David Steffen propose a bipartisan bill to let young offenders ask that their criminal records be expunged after they complete their sentences. Right now, convicts ages 17 to 25 can ask a judge to wipe their youthful indiscretions clean, but the request must come when they’re sentenced. Goyke, a Milwaukee Democrat, says Wisconsin is the only state in which expungements must be requested at sentencing, and it discourages employers from hiring young people when their sentences are done because their convictions are more likely to stay around. The bill would remove expunged records from not only the state’s publicly available online court records, they’d also be deleted from the Crime Information Bureau data that employers use to check out job candidates.
