Bill would seal certain DUI records

BISMARCK, N.D. - Rep. Dennis Johnson, R-Devils Lake, introduced a bill to seal DUI records if a person has pleaded guilty or nolo contendere, or no contest, to a DUI offense.

Johnson’s bill would seal the record from the public if someone keeps their record clean for seven years. The criminal justice system could still look back 15 years.

Johnson testified for the bill saying people had come to him telling him they can't get a job 10 years later because of the mistake they made when they were 19.
