Obtaining an expunction
Generally, to obtain an expunction, a criminal defendant must petition the court to have all case documents, such as the arrest record, removed and destroyed. If an expunction is granted, the defendant can deny ever being arrested for or charged with a particular criminal offense. Whether or not an expunction is awarded depends on the level of the charge, the outcome, and other factors.
For example, a Class “C” misdemeanor such as public intoxication or disorderly conduct can often be expunged. If your case was dismissed, depending on the charge, expunction may be possible. If you were found “not guilty”, you may be awarded an expunction.
Unless you have been acquitted or have had your case dismissed the expunction process may not be an available option. In that case, the next best thing is a Petition for Non-disclosure. A successful nondisclosure petition will prohibit court officials and law enforcement organizations from disclosing your criminal record to third parties such as employers, creditors and potential landlords.
Deferred adjudication allows a defendant to defer any guilty judgement until successfully completing probation, at which time the court can dismiss the case, paving the way for expungement of the case record.
Juvenile Records are often sealed, meaning that they will not be available as public records. Having a record sealed is similar to having records expunged, although it usually takes place in juvenile court.
