New tool helps Californians clear their juvenile records For California residents looking to move past the mistakes of their youth, sealing juvenile records is a frustrating, confusing and burdensome process, with each of the state's 58 counties requiring a different sets of obscure procedures. Now, a new tool from the Center on Juvenile and Criroinal Justice -- Seal It -- breaks down the process for Becky "Beckster" Mclntyre November 30, 1965 - June 10, 2014 Not all scars show. Not all wounds heal. Not all illness can be seen. Not all pain is obvious. Remember this before passing judgement on another.

Juvenile records, including records of arrests and court rulings, can interfere with finding a job, getting into college, becoming a citizen, getting a driver,s license and adopting a child, regardless of. how law-abiding a person~s - adulthood is. But while records are not automatically sealed when people turn 18 -- despite the common misperception that they are-- most people can petition to have their records sealed and eventually destroyed. "It's a really confusing process," says Brian Goldstein, CJCJ's director of policy and development. "There is a lot of misinformation, and unreasonable hoops to jump through. This website will help many people who do not deserve to be judged by their past mistakes." The tool also reveals significant disparities between the 58 counties. Despite the correlation between financial hardship and involvement in the justice system, three-fourths of California's counties charge fees as high as $150 to seal juvenile records, with fewer than half of those providing fee waivers. Only a third of counties have any online resources explaining how to seal juvenile records.
