AB 1076 – What Does This New Law Provide and When?

Assembly Bill (AB) 1076 provides for a new automatic expungement right, removing the need to affirmatively seek expungement, for all arrests and convictions taking place on or after January 1, 2021, wherein the person successfully completed probation, “for all misdemeanor offenses” (apparently including 290 registrable misdemeanors?) and non-violent felonies (what about serious felonies?) for those folks who are also not facing a pending charge, on probation in another case, or on parole or in custody. We are very curious to see how this new law operates, as it seems to allow expungement without charging the filing fee for this, which is good, but it may inadvertently expunge certain convictions that presently are excluded from such relief.
