This policy paper will review the numerous barriers to successful reintegration into the community that are faced by large numbers of citizens with criminal records in the nation and in Illinois. The paper will explain how the expungement and the sealing of such records could open doors to successful reintegration. Expungement legislation passed and pending in Illinois will be examined, and recommendations for future direction will be detailed.
