You’ve heard by now plenty about the Spent Convictions Bill, which aims to establish a mechanism where ex-cons can apply to have convictions expunged from their records.
Here’s a story Cayman 27 brought you on the general process by which it would work.
Here’s another on how the bill could benefit Caymanians seeking employment and another on why East End MLA Arden McLean says it could be a bad move for Cayman if passed as is.
On Tuesday (11 October) attorney Richard Barton sits down with Cayman 27’s Kevin Morales to take a more in-depth look at some of the clauses included in the bill. Specifically, they talk about a clause where potential employees for certain positions would be required to be forthcoming about their expunged convictions and another that would allow people previously convicted of marijuana possession to be eligible to apply to have that conviction expunged right away.
