DeSantis dumbfounds critics, vetoes push to expunge criminal records of minors

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has vetoed a bill to expunge criminal records of minors.

The bill would have created a path for tens of thousands of juveniles to get their criminal records erased after completing a behavioral program.

Sen. Annette Taddeo, a Miami Democrat who co-sponsored Senate Bill 274 said “I am, frankly, dumbfounded. … I don’t understand why you wouldn’t give an opportunity to a kid to remake their life.”

Many critics of DeSantis lashed out on Twitter over the move.
