Massachusetts state courts keep records of what happens in every criminal case. These records are called CORI - Criminal Offender Record Information.
People with CORI have rights.
New laws are in effect!
- 5 year waiting to seal misdemeanors reduced to 3 years,
- 10 year waiting for felony sealing reduced to 7 years,
- Resisting arrest convictions can now be sealed,
- Felony larceny threshold increased from $250 to $1200,
- After you seal, you can say you have "no record" when applying for housing and occupational licenses, not just when applying for jobs, and
- Some juvenile and adult expungement are now available
