South Africans who have paid an admission of guilt fine for trivial offences will no longer have to worry about incurring a criminal record. That, News24 reports, is if Justice and Correctional Services Minister Ronald Lamola has his way with the Criminal Procedure Amendment Bill that seeks to expunge certain criminal records that result from an admission of guilt payment. Lamola said a draft legislative proposal, in the form of the bill, would revise the current admission of guilt fine “as provided for in the CPA” and would, among other things, allow for the expungement of certain criminal records that result from admission of guilt fines and the expungement of criminal records that result from admission of guilt fines that have been paid in respect of trivial offences before the enactment of the proposed law.
