CARSON CITY, Nev. – A new Nevada state law will soon allow people convicted of certain crimes to seal their records much earlier, offering a better chance to get their lives back on track after completing their sentence.
Assembly Bill 327, signed by Gov. Brian Sandoval this week, halves the time people have to wait to seal a misdemeanor record, from two years down to one – but only if the person has maintained a spotless record in the interim.
