What is an Expungement?
The process of sealing arrest and conviction records from public access. This includes removal of photographs, fingerprints, disposition, and any other information. However, this does not mean the destruction of the record.
Arrests and convictions can effect your everyday life, making it more difficult to find a job or a place to rent. It can even be used against you in custody cases. After successfully completing one's sentence or probation, one may be eligible to expunge their record.
Once an arrest or conviction is expunged, it no longer needs to be disclosed to potential employers, landlords, or college admissions councils. Backround checks run by state licensing (driver's licence), banks, insurance companies, professional and volunteer organizations will not show expunged records. Expungements of non-violent and non-sexual crimes may even allow one to obtain a concealed weapons permit.
Who Qualifies for an Expungement?
Anyone who has a non-violent felony or misdemeanour conviction and has successfully completed their sentence or probation may begin the expungement process. If you had any problems during probation or received multiple charges you may still be eligible for an expungement.
