Attorney Cotter C. Conway Can Expunge/Seal Prior Criminal Records

expungeThe State of California allows you to expunge your records after successful completion of probation. One of the benefits of having your records expunged in California is that you do not have to list it on employment applications to private employers. Additionally, some felony cases can be reduced to misdemeanors after successful completion of probation.

In Nevada, you can seal your records after a short time for misdemeanor cases depending on the disposition of the case, and a longer period of time for felonies. If you seal your records in Nevada, you actually receive an order from the court essentially saying your conviction never occurred and you can answer in that way to anyone who asks.

In DUI and domestic violence cases you can and should seal your records 7 years after the end of your suspended sentence. It is important to take this step because in some states, such as California, a prior DUI conviction can be used for enhancement purposes in subsequent cases if they occur within 10 years of the previous case.

You should always seal your record as soon as you’re able because records cannot be sealed if there is a pending criminal action.
