What is Expungement?
Expungement is a legal process wherein a criminal conviction is dismissed. This means that the conviction, whether obtained through a guilty plea, finding of guilt or no contest plea, is essentially set aside and the case dismissed. By clearing a conviction from a criminal record, an expungement offers a defendant much-needed relief from the many different consequences of living with a criminal record. A criminal conviction may affect employment, housing, financial and educational opportunities and will affect a person's reputation and even his or her peace of mind.
It is important to note, however, that an expungement does not fully erase our criminal record. It may still be accessible to government agencies and in the event of a future arrest may impact sentencing that you would face.
