This July has welcomed some exceptional news — the expansion of sealing laws in Illinois! Bill HB3061, formerly HB5723, will soon go into effect and has expanded the eligibility for the sealing of criminal records.
This new law enables those with criminal records to petition the Prisoner Review Board to seal all Class 3 and 4 felony convictions, with the exception of violent, sex, or DUI crimes. Prior to this new legislation, only Class 4 drug crimes and prostitution convictions were eligible for sealing. Bill HB3061 will expand the pool of those eligible to seal their criminal records from the public, thereby enabling better access to jobs, housing, and education.
