The Judicial Expungement Regulations
AbstractThe expungement is characterized in Criminal Law by its consequences. These consequences, institutionally representing the essence and the specific character of expungement, are common to both expungement by law and judicial one. Expungement acts purposely to abate the consequences of punishment, either these are criminal (such as some complementary sentences), or these are non criminal (civil or administrative consequences). These consequences meet the case to the reason which necessitated the regulation of expungement – criminal law is not meant to irredeemably affect offenders – as well as the purpose of this institution: the offender’s social reintegration due to good conduct. As it is, once the main punishment ceased, the offender also has to serve complementary noncustodial sentences, when pronounced.
