West Virginians who have turned their lives around since serving their sentences deserve a second chance. To help move good policy like this forward, Senator Glenn Jeffries championed legislation that helps give people a chance for a clean slate.
By providing non-violent offenders the opportunity to expunge their records, the Second Chance for Employment Act (SB 152) opens up additional opportunities for these individuals. While accomplishing this, the bill still excludes dangerous offenses.
Join us in thanking Senator Jeffries for standing up for this good policy and for helping break down barriers for West Virginians.
