Most people assume that a criminal conviction will remain on their records forever. Even if the accused is acquitted by a judge or jury, a record of the charge will remain. Even the successful completion of a diversionary program will not erase the record of arrest. If you have questions regarding your criminal record, I encourage you to contact my office immediately.
The act of erasing or expunging, a criminal record can take a frustrating and circuitous path. The most important factor here, though, is that expungements take time. Many individuals wish to apply for a job and notice that the application process includes an extensive background check. At this time, these individuals begin exploring their options regarding clearing their records. In reality, people should discuss expungement with a criminal defense attorney as soon after the case as possible.
“An expungement can give a young person a fresh start in the competitive job market or give an individual the peace of mind to know that a past offense will not cause embarrassment in the future. Do not hesitate to contact our office to learn more about expungement.” – Joseph J. Rodgers
