William H. "Billy" Murphy Jr. Co-authors Baltimore Sun Op-ed

Earlier this week, founding partner Judge William H. “Billy” Murphy, Jr. co-authored with David Warnock an op-ed piece in the Baltimore Sun detailing the tedious process of expungement for Maryland residents who’ve been charged with a crime but their case did not result in a conviction. Which, in 2013, was 83% of those charged.

Murphy says that the expungement process is so difficult that most who qualify don’t even apply, leaving them with difficulty getting a job, applying for housing, etc. In the piece, Judge Murphy and Mr. Warnock offer a solution, and call on elected leaders to act.
