For months, I have been telling my clients about HB 3061, now widely known as “the Illinois sealing bill”. In essence, HB 3061 expands the pool of offenses eligible for sealing. Just last week, Governor Pat Quinn signed HB 3061, which immediately went into effect. Under this new law, several non-violent felonies have been added to the list of offenses for which records may sealed. The offenses include retail theft, forgery, possession of burglary tools and possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance.
