Years have passed in some cases, and the person is leading a law-abiding life and now wishes to clean their criminal record. The procedure to do so is an expungement.
Expungements are available for many types of misdemeanor and felony offenses, however, they are not available when a person has been sentenced to state prison. The facts of each case must be closely evaluated to determine if an expungement is possible.
With certain exceptions, such as on applications for a state license or in response to law enforcement, an expungement legally entitles a person to say they have never been convicted of a criminal offense. This is especially important when applying for employment, and erases the negative stigma of a criminal conviction.
