Should the juvinle record of been sealed. my client has not reoffended ever. My client now is 31 and still has to register as an offender? or should that have been sealed with his juvy record?

Re: expungement, Juv Public Records

Juvenile courts records are no longer sealed in many cases, see my web site FFI, link below.

Also, sex offender registration is a separate issue from public court and law enforcement agency records.

Re: espongement

A criminal sexual conduct conviction is not sealed if there was extended juvenile jurisdiction. Moreover, the person's status as a sexual offender would remain bpublic.
