Eligibility for an expungement of an arrest, investigation, detention, or conviction record will be based on the law of the jurisdiction in which the record was made. Ordinarily, only the subject of the record may ask that the record be expunged. Often, the subject must meet a number of conditions before the request will be considered.
Requirements often include one or more of the following:
Fulfilling a waiting period between the incident and expungement;
Having no intervening incidents;
Having no more than a specified number of prior incidents;
That the conviction be of a nature not considered to be too serious;
That all terms of the sentence be completely fulfilled;
That no proceedings be pending;
That the incident was disposed without a conviction; and
That the petitioner complete probation without any incidents.
It is imperative that you have competent, knowledgeable representation to minimize the impact on your life of your arrest and/or charges. Hiring a lawyer is an important decision. If you are arrested you need accurate information to help guide you through the steps of the process. Contact Loren Graham for the support you need.
