Our client came to us with a 2010 assault and battery charge, that he wished to be sealed. Even though the case had been dismissed, it still appeared on his Massachusetts criminal record (CORI). The presence of the case on his record had recently caused him problems, and he had been forced to explain it to people.
Our client decided that it was time to seal this 2010 record. Attorney Alexander Conley assisted our client in navigating the proper procedures to seal this record, and to provide all the necessary documentation to the Office of the Commissioner of Probation. Our client’s petition to seal was accepted, thus ensuring that, in most circumstances, the record will no longer be accessible.
