Assemblywoman Lisa Krasner’s juvenile justice bill, AB 251, passed unanimously on both the Nevada Assembly and Senate Floor and is on its way to the Governor’s Office.
- Assembly Bill 251 will require that a juvenile’s record be sealed at the age of 18, subject to judicial discretion.
- Assembly Bill 251 will also allow a person 18 years of age or older to petition the juvenile court to wipe the slate clean on their juvenile record for any misdemeanor or less.
This Bill is very important in ensuring a brighter future for our juveniles by offering them a fresh start and a second chance. When asked, Assemblywoman Krasner said, “The passage of Assembly Bill 251 gives a great opportunity to our youth to have a fresh start and a second chance to have a successful future.”
