My question involves criminal records for the state of: Massachusetts.
When my sister was charged with assault & battery, she got a suspended sentence and just had to finish probation. The court said her record would get expunged after finishing probation, so how does she go about checking that?
She seems to think it was going to get automatically expunged, and I guess she tried one of those background check sites where you pay $7, and her record was clean. I can't imagine those are that trustworthy, but who knows.
Does the court ever automatically erase your record? How can you find out if your record has been expunged?
