BERKSHIRE COUNTYThe Berkshire District Attorney’s Office co-hosted an event with Community Legal Aid on Nov. 9 to share information and raise awareness about expunging and sealing of criminal records.

People who have past criminal records are still entitled to live their lives productively. Criminal records can negatively impact a person’s access to employment, housing, financial assistance, and higher education.

The Berkshire District Attorney’s Office presented what record sealing and expungement is, how the process works, and what determines a person’s eligibility. Community Legal Aid provided a presentation on “Knowing Your Rights” when it comes to record sealing and expungement and crucial information for those with criminal records that are applying to jobs and housing.
