Expand Record Sealing
Expanding Eligibility for Sealing Records: A Matter of Worth and Dignity
Currently, over 4 million Illinois citizens who have served their time are excluded from applying for jobs, housing, education and other opportunities because they have a criminal record. Providing an opportunity for the to have their records sealed affords them the opportunity to turn their lives around and become productive members of society. HB 2373 will expand the eligibility of felony records that can be sealed, allowing more people to petition the court to have their records sealed from public view.
