Democratic Assemblyman Joe Lentol urged in a statement on Friday the approval of a bill that would have the records sealed of people who have been convicted of petty offenses by default.

The measure would add language to the law in order to clarify the only determination for whether a record should be sealed is the final disposition of the case, not the original charge.

The bill is meant to address inconsistent records sealing when the top charge was a violation or traffic infraction, leading to low-level violations many people thought had been sealed, were not.

“There were problems with how law enforcement on the local level was applying a 1994 law we passed. We needed to clarify the intent of the original bill that aimed to seal petty offenses,” Lentol said.

“We are confident that this bill will ensure that those cases that the court determines can be sealed will be sealed. This bill is a no brainer for creating a more fair and equitable criminal justice system. We passed monumental criminal justice reforms and this is another win for New Yorkers.”

The bill was delivered to Gov. Andrew Cuomo this week.
