Individuals with criminal records say their histories make it more difficult for them to find housing and employment –obstacles that, according to criminal justice reform advocates, funnel people back into the cycle of crime. Two proposals by elected leaders in D.C. would simplify the process of sealing or completely expunging criminal records. One proposal goes so far as to require that records be fully and automatically expunged if a person is arrested but not prosecuted, or prosecuted but not convicted.
