Kadyn's Law findings
With Kadyn’s Law, although misdemeanor convictions do not pose the same penalties as felony convictions, they often have other effects on a person’s life. Employers often run background checks and, when they do, a misdemeanor is a criminal offense that will appear on the report. A misdemeanor can also cause problems with obtaining security clearances.
As with any new law, some enhanced judicial outreach will help to align convictions with the revised penalties.
Given that the law was enacted in March 2012, a review of the “failure to stop for a school bus” convictions between Aug. 15 and Oct. 31, 2012, showed, even though Kadyn’s Law requires a minimum fine of $250 for the first offense, 105 of the total 162 convictions (65 percent) had a fine amount of less than $250 (Driver Services Research and Driver Safety Data Analysis 2012).
