Expungement of a Crime

Methods for Erasing Prior Criminal Records

Expungement is a legal process that allows one to erase a prior criminal record, including that of being arrested, charged with a crime or convicted of a crime. If a person has completed the terms of their sentencing, such as a probation period, then they can become eligible to seek an expungement. The petition will be made to the court for a judge to give a decision in. If an expungement is granted then the guilty plea is revoked, a not guilty plea given and the case will then be dismissed.

In addition to the record clearance method of expungement, one can also do away with the effects of a prior record through a Certificate of Rehabilitation. This certificate is issued as an order from a court, and states categorically that a person convicted of a felony has been rehabilitated. It can be issued for a variety of felony offenses, and in the case of sex crimes, can serve to allow one to cease registering as a sex offender for the remainder of their lives.

Eliminating the legal impact of a prior arrest or conviction can provide an individual with new opportunities for success and growth in life. Criminal records have the potential to limit a person in many ways, including denying them the ability to get a good job, apply for a home or vehicle loan, or pursue secondary education. Should a person seal or destroy a criminal record through expungement, they will have the legal right to say that they were never involved with the crime in question in any way. If you are interested in seeking an expungement for a drunk driving charge, do not hesitate to get the involvement of our firm as soon as possible.
