Virginia had some of the most archaic laws when it came to forgiveness of criminal offenses. Sweeping criminal justice reforms occurred in 2020/21. With such sweeping reforms were the game-changing sealing laws. The sealing laws are straightforward and complex all at the same time. There is automatic sealing and petition sealing.
Expungement in limited circumstances remains. There are also implications of background checks and responsibilities required to secure sealed information. This can expose certain entities and it is important for the individual as well as the company to provide background checks to understand the exposure and responsibilities.
When does the automatic sealing of records go into effect? What is eligible for sealing? What is eligible for expungement? What are the procedures for such petitions?
What is the difference between the two?
