Human trafficking: victims: vacating convictions.

Abstract

(1) Under existing law, as amended by Proposition 35, an initiative measure approved by the voters at the November 6, 2012, statewide general election, a person who deprives or violate another person's personal liberty with the intent to obtain forced labor or services or who deprives or violates another person's personal liberty for the purpose of prostitution or sexual exploitation is guilty of human trafficking, a felony. Proposition 35 provides that it may be amended by a statute in furtherance of its objectives by a majority of the membership of each house of the Legislature concurring. Existing law allows a court to issue an order to set aside a verdict of guilty and dismiss an accusation or information against a defendant who has been convicted of solicitation or prostitution if the defendant has completed any term of probation for that conviction and if he or she can establish by clear and convincing evidence that the conviction was a result of his or her status as a victim of human trafficking. This bill would instead allow an individual convicted of a nonviolent crime that was a direct result of the individual being a human trafficking victim to apply to the court to vacate the conviction if the individual is not then in custody and has either not been convicted of any crime for two years or has successfully completed probation for the crime. The bill would allow an individual adjudicated a ward of the juvenile court as the result of a nonviolent crime committed while he or she was a human trafficking victim to apply to have the petition dismissed if the individual has not had a sustained petition for any crime or been convicted of any crime for one year prior to the date of application. The bill would specify various court procedures for adjudication of an application. If the application is granted, the bill would require the court to have all records in the case sealed, except as specified, and to release the defendant from all penalties and disabilities, as provided. The bill would define "human trafficking victim" and "nonviolent crime" for these purposes. The bill would require the individual applying for vacatur to submit the application and all evidence in support of the application under penalty of perjury. By expanding the crime of perjury, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. (2) Existing law requires the Attorney General to compile and disseminate state summary criminal history information pertaining to the identification and criminal history of any person. This bill would require the state summary criminal history information to exclude any charge or conviction for which relief has been granted pursuant to the provisions of this bill. (3) This bill would incorporate additional changes to Section 8712 of the Family Code, proposed by AB 1997, that would become operative only if this bill and AB 1997 are enacted and become effective on or before January 1, 2017, and this bill is chaptered last. (4) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
