Allows the attorney general and a person harmed by a criminal history provider to bring an action against the criminal history provider if the criminal history provider fails to update its records or discloses non-conviction information. Requires a court to restrict disclosure of information relating to an infraction to a noncriminal justice organization or individual if: (1) the person alleged to have committed the infraction is not prosecuted; (2) the infraction is dismissed; (3) the person is found not to have committed the infraction; or (4) the judgment is reversed on appeal. Establishes a procedure for the person to restrict disclosure of the information relating to the infraction if the court fails to act on its own. Requires records relating to an infraction to be sealed five years after the judgment for the infraction is satisfied. Makes it a Class B infraction for an employer to ask if a person's criminal records have been sealed or restricted.
