Rhode Island woman regains freedom after expungement

Posted on July 2nd, 2010 No Comments

45-year old Felicia Delgado of Rhode Island celebrated this week after District Court Judge Elaine Bucci announced the expungement of previous prostitution convictions from her record.   The ruling is the first of its kind after a provision to the state of Rhode Island’s prostitution law that allows the expungement of an unlimited number of prostitution convictions from an individual’s record.

Despite objections from the attorney general, Judge Bucci agreed to expunge the five loitering for prostitution counts from 1999 to 2001 from Delgado’s records.   The attorney general expressed plans to appeal the decision.  If the decision is reversed, Delgado will still have shoplifting, check fraud, and drug possession charges expunged.

Delgado has most recently been working for a neighborhood organization devoted to helping women off the streets.
