3/29/21 – Skyler Wheeler on Bill to Remove Low-Level Felonies

A bill passed from the House Judiciary Committee would remove certain low-level felonies from a person’s record.  State Rep Skyler Wheeler of Orange City, a member of the Judiciary committee, says it will remove what could be a permanent scar on a person’s record.

Wheeler recognizes that offenders can change over time.

Wheeler says some mistakes by young people shouldn’t dog them for the rest of their lives.

These feloney convictions for non-violent cirmes would be removed form a person’s record if there are no more convictions over a ten year period.  The bill is to be taken up by the full House.
