Shapiro Co-Chairs Committee Drafting Proposal for Expungement Law in New York
Different states vary in their approaches to how persons convicted of offenses can demonstrate their rehabilitation and be eligible to have a second chance without the stigma of a criminal record. Currently, New York does not have a law that allows for such an application, and the New York State Bar Association is in the process of deciding whether it will advocate the passage of such legislation. A committee, co-chaired by Jay Shapiro will propose a draft for review by the New York State Bar association. The issue will be presented during the New York State Bar's annual meeting in January.
