if substantially related to the benefit or opportunity at issue, the particular facts and
circumstances involved in the offense, and the essential elements of the offense. A
conviction itself may not be considered except as having established the elements of the
offense. The decision maker shall also consider other relevant information including, at a
minimum, the effect on third parties of granting the benefit or opportunity and whether
the individual has been granted relief such as an order of limited relief or a certificate
of restoration of rights.
new text end

Sec. 9.

new text begin [638.18] EFFECT OF CONVICTION BY ANOTHER STATE OR THE
UNITED STATES; RELIEVED OR PARDONED CONVICTION.
new text end

new text begin (a) For purposes of authorizing or imposing a collateral consequence in this state,
a conviction of an offense in a court of another state or the United States is deemed a
conviction of the offense in this state with the same elements. If there is no offense in
this state with the same elements, the conviction is deemed a conviction of the most
serious offense in this state which is established by the elements of the offense. A
misdemeanor in the jurisdiction of conviction may not be deemed a felony in this state,
and an offense lesser than a misdemeanor in the jurisdiction of conviction may not be
deemed a conviction of a felony, gross misdemeanor, or misdemeanor in this state.
new text end

new text begin (b) For purposes of authorizing or imposing a collateral consequence in this state, a
juvenile adjudication in another state or the United States may not be deemed a conviction
of a felony, gross misdemeanor, misdemeanor, or offense lesser than a misdemeanor in
this state, but may be deemed a juvenile adjudication for the delinquent act in this state
with the same elements. If there is no delinquent act in this state with the same elements,
the juvenile adjudication is deemed an adjudication of the most serious delinquent act in
this state which is established by the elements of the offense.
new text end

new text begin (c) A conviction that is reversed, overturned, or otherwise vacated by a court of
competent jurisdiction of this state, another state, or the United States on grounds other
than rehabilitation or good behavior may not serve as the basis for authorizing or imposing
a collateral consequence in this state.
new text end

new text begin (d) A pardon issued by another state or the United States has the same effect for
purposes of authorizing, imposing, and relieving a collateral consequence in this state as
it has in the issuing jurisdiction.
new text end

new text begin (e) A conviction that has been relieved by expungement, sealing, annulment,
set-aside, or vacation by a court of competent jurisdiction of another state or the United
States on grounds of rehabilitation or good behavior, or for which civil rights are restored
pursuant to statute, has the same effect for purposes of authorizing or imposing collateral
consequences in this state as it has in the jurisdiction of conviction. However, this relief or
restoration of civil rights does not relieve collateral consequences applicable under the law
of this state for which relief could not be granted under section 638.21 or for which relief
was expressly withheld by the court order or by the law of the jurisdiction that relieved the
conviction. An individual convicted in another jurisdiction may seek relief under section
638.19 or 638.20 from any collateral consequence for which relief was not granted in the
issuing jurisdiction, other than those listed in section 638.21, and the Department of
Corrections, Policy and Legal Services Unit, Hearings and Release, shall consider that the
conviction was relieved or civil rights restored in deciding whether to issue an order of
limited relief or certificate of restoration of rights.
new text end

new text begin (f) A charge or prosecution in any jurisdiction which has been finally terminated
without a conviction and imposition of sentence based on participation in a deferred
adjudication or diversion program may not serve as the basis for authorizing or imposing
a collateral consequence in this state. This paragraph does not affect the validity of any
restriction or condition imposed by law as part of participation in the deferred adjudication
or diversion program, before or after the termination of the charge or prosecution.
new text end

Sec. 10.

new text begin [638.19] ORDER OF LIMITED RELIEF.
new text end

new text begin (a) An individual convicted of an offense may petition for an order of limited relief
from one or more collateral sanctions related to employment, education, housing, public
benefits, or occupational licensing. The petition may be presented to the:
new text end

new text begin (1) sentencing court at or before sentencing; or
new text end

new text begin (2) Department of Corrections, Policy and Legal Services Unit, Hearings and
Release, at any time after sentencing.
new text end

new text begin (b) Except as otherwise provided in section 638.21, the court or the Department of
Corrections, Policy and Legal Services Unit, Hearings and Release, may issue an order of
limited relief relieving one or more of the collateral sanctions described in paragraph (a) if,
after reviewing the petition, the individual's criminal history, any filing by a victim under
section 638.24 or a prosecutor, and any other relevant evidence, it finds the individual has
established by a preponderance of the evidence that:
new text end

new text begin (1) granting the petition will materially assist the individual in obtaining or
maintaining employment, education, housing, public benefits, or occupational licensing;
new text end

new text begin (2) the individual has substantial need for the relief requested in order to live a
law-abiding life; and
new text end

new text begin (3) granting the petition would not pose an unreasonable risk to the safety or welfare
of the public or any individual.
new text end

new text begin (c) The order of limited relief must specify:
new text end

new text begin (1) the collateral sanction from which relief is granted; and
new text end

new text begin (2) any restriction imposed pursuant to section 638.22, paragraph (a).
new text end

new text begin (d) An order of limited relief relieves a collateral sanction to the extent provided in
the order.
new text end

new text begin (e) If a collateral sanction has been relieved pursuant to this section, a decision
maker may consider the conduct underlying a conviction as provided in section 638.17.
new text end

Sec. 11.

new text begin [638.20] CERTIFICATE OF RESTORATION OF RIGHTS.
new text end

new text begin (a) An individual convicted of an offense may petition the Department of
Corrections, Policy and Legal Services Unit, Hearings and Release, for a certificate of
restoration of rights relieving collateral sanctions not sooner than five years after the
individual's most recent conviction of a felony, gross misdemeanor, or misdemeanor in any
jurisdiction, or not sooner than five years after the individual's release from confinement
pursuant to a criminal sentence in any jurisdiction, whichever is later.
new text end

new text begin (b) Except as otherwise provided in section 638.21, the Department of Corrections,
Policy and Legal Services Unit, Hearings and Release, may issue a certificate of
restoration of rights if, after reviewing the petition, the individual's criminal history, any
filing by a victim under section 638.24 or a prosecutor, and any other relevant evidence, it
