SEA 191-Photos in Criminal History Files

Provides that a law enforcement or justice agency reporting an arrest must submit a photo of the suspect and those photographs are included as part of the limited criminal history an employer may request before hiring. It's puzzling why an employer would want a 20-year old mug shot or even one-year old photo for that matter. The employer can learn all he/she needs to know about prospective a propspective employee from court papers, applications and properly prepared background checks. There are private companies that excel in providing quality background checks. Is it not possible for a person to learn from mistakes made without our government standing on the sidelines undermining attempts at personal growth? Show some respect, please.
