RI wants to clear more criminal records

Posted on May 27th, 2010 No Comments

Lawmakers in Rhode Island are voting to make a law that will make it easier for convicted criminals to clear their record.

Judges in Rhode Island have already previously decided to seal the records of first offenders who were convicted of nonviolent crimes after five years of the completion of their sentence of a misdemeanor and 10 years after a felony.

The new bill seeks to seal the record after five years of any crime in which the person has been given deferred sentence and as long as the person stays out of trouble during those five years.

Expungement law can be difficult to understand, if you are searching for legal advice on how to clear your name, contact the Dallas expungement attorney of Mark T. Lassiter by calling 214-651-1121 to discuss your legal options.
