House Bill 3061 – The New Sealing Law

On June 19, 2013 House Bill 3061 was sent to Governor Pat Quinn to sing into law. HB 3061, if signed by Gov. Quinn, will allow the sealing of criminal records for non-violent class 4, 3, and 2 Felonies enumerated under the new law.

Prior to HB 3061, the previous Sealing statue only allowed the sealing of two types of felonies. 1. Class 4 Felony drug possession and

2. Class 4 Felony prostitution.

The expansion of the expungement and sealing law will allow thousands of Chicago-land residents the opportunity for better employment. It will prevent potential employers from viewing drug, theft, and other offenses on your record thus increasing your chances of gainful employment.
