    Question ? House file 2354 – does this protect(hide) a students criminal record such as what happened in Parkland Fl. 19 criminal reports to police and he still had no police record – that did not come out to swell. Just asking.

    Sounds like the old supervisor in worth county that tried to steal a farm at a tax sale would have owned it because of the time limit now shorted to appeal this type of sale – well he used to be a state politician so I guess he helped write this shortened version of theft. That’s house file 2318 by the way.
