Who is eligible for an expunction?
In order to have your criminal record expunged, you must meet a few requirements. If you were found not guilty, or the charges were dismissed for various reasons, such as
- Lack of probable cause
- False information
- Lack of evidence
You may be eligible.
Why get an expunction?
In order to obtain certain jobs--in schools, for instance--you need a clean criminal record. Some landlords will also do a criminal background check on prospective tenants. When they look at the record and see "criminal charges," they usually do not notice the small initials at the bottom that indicate that the charge was dismissed. Therefore, they see the prospect as guilty even though he or she was not convicted. With an expungement, a prospect gets a truly clean slate.
