What would the legal basis for this be? If you're on the freeway and get arrested for doing 75 in a 65 zone and next year that speed limit is bumped up to 75, you don't get the fine returned and the conviction expunged or deleted; the fact remains that the act was illegal at the time it was committed.
As I understand it (I am not a lawyer) laws that are found to be unconstitutional are to be treated as if they had never had any force of law or never had existed. Now, how this works out in reality I cant say and other here are much more informed on these things, but that's the answer as I understand it.
