Language is removed that previously provided a route for juvenile records not to be sealed. Provisions stand for administrative sealings if the crimes committed follow under the outlined guidelines. Specifics of when a young person’s record may be sealed, including restitution that may be owed to victims, are outlined. The Washington state identification system, through the State Patrol, shall no longer provide criminal justice agencies access to sealed juvenile records information.
