Sealing Criminal Records in Worcester

If you were arrested for a crime, you have a criminal record. Even if you were found not guilty or your case was dismissed, the record of your arrest still exists. Your criminal record can keep you from getting a job or getting into a good school.

At the Worcester law office of Anthony M. Salerno, P.C., we help clients seal their criminal records in Massachusetts. Attorney Anthony Salerno has 25 years of criminal defense experience, and he understands the effect a criminal record can have on your future. He will work diligently to seal your criminal record so you can move forward.

Sealing the Record and Expungements in Massachusetts

Unlike other states, Massachusetts does not allow expungement of a criminal record. When a record is expunged, it is erased. Instead, in Massachusetts, you can get a criminal record sealed. The record still exists, but sealing it limits access to the record to law enforcement and the courts.

Records are not automatically sealed. You must petition the court for an order to seal your criminal record. If you were not convicted of a crime, you can immediately petition the court to seal your criminal record. If you were convicted of a misdemeanor, you must wait five years to seal your record. For a felony conviction, you must wait 10 years. If you were convicted of a juvenile offense, you must wait three years from the end of your sentence before you can petition to have your record sealed.

We can help you determine if you are eligible to have your record sealed. If you do qualify, we can guide you through the process and ensure that your rights are protected at every stage.
