This bill requires the Attorney General and each county prosecutor to remove from their respective websites all references and information concerning indictments and prosecutions of persons who were later acquitted of criminal charges or had the charges dismissed. The bill also requires the Attorney General and each county prosecutor to post information, including an updated press release, on their website notifying the public that the person was acquitted or had the charges dismissed. The Attorney General or county prosecutor, as the case may be, is also required to provide a letter to every person who was indicted or prosecuted and thereafter acquitted or had the charges dismissed. The letter is to certify that the person was acquitted of, or that there was a dismissal of, all charges arising from the indictment or prosecution.
