California inmate firefighters could have their criminal records cleared under a newly proposed law. The bill would allow former inmates who worked as an inmate firefighter to apply for expungement when they are released from custody. About 2,500 inmates serve on fire crews across California. Under current law, former inmates can apply for their criminal records to be expunged after finishing parole.
