Expungements went live in Arizona today. To talk about what that means for people with a previous conviction, Arizona NORML and Julie Gunnigle joined ABC15.
The expungements available under Proposition 207 give people a true second chance. They seal any records of arrest, conviction, charges, or adjudication. For people laboring under the collateral consequences of a felony conviction, this can be life-changing.
Arizona NORML continues to host in-person and virtual events to help people prepare the documents they need to clear their records. To see if you are eligible (or to prepare a petition from the privacy of your own home computer or smartphone), click here to get started.
