THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Three local Republican state representatives are raising concerns over freshly signed “Clean Slate” legislation, which will broaden the allowances for sealing criminal records. Both state Senator Dan Stec (R,C-Queensbury) and Sen. Mark Walczyk, (R-Watertown), along with Assemblyman Scott Gray (R-Watertown) have all issued statements aimed at Gov. Kathy Hochul who signed it into law Nov. 16 The legislation would automatically seal certain criminal records after a required waiting period – three years after conviction or release from jail for a misdemeanor and eight years after conviction or release from prison for a felony – provided they have maintained a clean record and are no longer on probation or parole.
