Criminal Records Amendment (Historical Homosexual Offences) Bill 2014

ON 23 OCTOBER 2014, the NSW Parliament passed the Criminal Records Amendment (Historical Homosexual Offences) Bill 2014.

The legislation amends the Criminal Records Act 1991 (NSW) by providing a process for extinguishing convictions for certain consensual homosexual conduct that was illegal in New South Wales up until 1984. The process also covers conduct that ceased to be an offence when the unequal age of consent laws were changed in 2003.
