The Canton Repository reviewed the records in municipal court and found that 65 persons had had criminal records expunged in 2007, continuing what it said was a steady growth since the year 2000 when only two expungements were approved by the court. One official said the increase was a response to the growing ease of making criminal background checks via the Internet. (1/21/08)
