Del. Code Ann. tit. 11, § 787(j)
Survivors of trafficking may petition to vacate convictions and destroy all records pertaining to offenses committed as a direct result of trafficking. Relief also covers arrests, non-prosecuted cases and or other records that are not convictions. However, violent felonies are excluded.
Official documentation of the person’s status as a victim of trafficking is not required, but creates a presumption that the participation in the offenses was because of the trafficking and survivors are required to appear for a hearing. Unfortunately, there is no provision guaranteeing confidentiality.
