What is Expungement?
Expungement is the process of clear charges from an individual’s criminal record. This is an important step in the legal process that betters the lives of individuals looking to move on from their past. An individual with a criminal record is at risk for severe consequences in their professional and personal lives, affecting their friends and family. A potential employer may refuse to hire an individual due to their criminal record or a landlord may not offer a leasing contract. Fortunately, there are legal options that may lead to the expungement of certain arrests and convictions from your record. By contacting a lawyer that is experienced in expungement, you may more easily and efficiently navigate the complicated legal process of sealing or removing arrests and convictions from public record.
Eligibility for Expungement
Different jurisdictions will have different standards for arrests and convictions that may be expunged from your record. You may qualify for expungement if your case involves any one of the following:
- Some drug charges
- Class C misdemeanors
- Successfully completed deferred adjudication
- Dismissed cases and acquittals
You may still be eligible for expungement even if you were found guilty of certain crimes. Cases not eligible for expungement, may be eligible for an Order of Non-Disclosure. To learn if you may qualify for either of these actions, contact Kyle Sampson, Attorney at Law.
