Expunge Criminal Record
Orlando Criminal Defense Attorney
To expunge is a verb that refers to the destroying or erasing of something. Legally, the term expunge refers to the act of wiping clean, or erasing a criminal record. Each state has varying laws and regulations surrounding the expungement of criminal records. Generally, juvenile records are expunged when the individual becomes an adult. In cases where records are not expunged for juvenile violations, they are generally sealed. Sealing a record is differentiated from expungement in that the records still exist, they are just make inaccessible to the public. In cases of expungement, the records disappear completely.
In cases where the violation of law occurred in one’s adult year, expungement is not generally an automatic event, although some states do automatically expunge DUI records. Despite this fact, it is possible to petition the court to expunge a criminal record. This is left to the discretion of the court, as per state laws regarding the offense, the passage of time, and the current state of the individual’s criminal record. In most states fingerprints, DNA records, and photographs are eligible for expungement, as are misdeneanors for first-time offenders, and non-violent crimes. And, while any crime can be requested to be expunged, violent felonies are generally not applicable for expungement.
