AN ACT WAIVING COURT FEES FOR CRIMINAL RECORDS PROVIDED TO FEDERAL PUBLIC DEFENDERS

SUMMARY: This act eliminates the requirement that the Office of the Federal Public Defender pay the fee specified in CGS 52-259 for any certified copy of any criminal record. That statute does not explicitly mention fees for copies of criminal records, but it requires a $25 fee for a certified copy of any judgment file.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2008

BACKGROUND

Related Law

The law exempts the Immigration and Naturalization Service from paying these fees (CGS 52-259a(b)(1)).
