Bringing Awareness to Criminal Expungement Provisions in the Massachusetts Criminal Justice Reform Bill

Massachusetts Recreational Consumer Council

Date: October 27, 2018
Location: Boston, MA

Kara Thorvaldsen (Partner-Boston) and Jason Canne (Associate-Boston) will participate in the first Massachusetts National Day of Expungement to be held on October 27, 2018, in Boston. Sponsored by the Massachusetts Recreational Consumer Council (MRCC), the event will provide an overview of how to seal and expunge criminal records in Massachusetts. Kara and Jason will discuss the criminal expungement provisions that were included in the Massachusetts Criminal Justice Reform Bill and became effective in October 2018. The focus of this event is to explain the new law so community members are knowledgeable about eligibility and to open discussion about pathways toward legislative improvement. This event is in collaboration with nongovernmental organizations across the country who will each hold a National Day of Expungement during the week of October 20th-27th to bring awareness to expungement. 

More information and registration are available on the event website.
