Experts Say...

Phillip W. Goff, a Corpus Christi attorney said, "Although expunction and non-disclosure are unavailable to people with convictions, one worthy movement to help is 'Ban the Box.' Ban the Box effectively removes the question about criminal records on job applications." Goff continued, "While the information may arise during an interview, the employer has already determined the applicant is worthy of a closer look. Support initiatives like this help re-integrate those who have been incarcerated and served their sentences, as well as those who didn't have to be incarcerated but are burdened by their criminal records."
