Our first effort at a motion to seal a conviction under the new law looks like it will be a success. We received confirmation today that the District Attorney's Office, upon reviewing our motion, has affirmatively consented to the sealing of our client's conviction. They consented even though our client's original arrest included non-eligible, A felony charges. We could not be happier. We need to wait for the Judge to make the final decision, but with the support of the District Attorney's Office, it will be hard to imagine that the Judge will disapprove.
This is fantastic news and a great way to start this new and exciting way to help people put their past mistakes behind them.
