Governor vetoes criminal conviction set-aside bill

Governor Pete Ricketts vetoed a bill (LB350) that would have allowed a person convicted of a misdemeanor or felony with a sentence other than probation or a fine to ask the court to set aside their conviction once they complete their sentence.

Sen. John McCollister introduced the bill initially in January 2017, and the legislature passed it on March 15, 2018. Notably, the bill excluded certain people from the set-aside provisions, including anyone with a criminal case pending, and anyone required to register as a sex offender.
