Get A Clean Record After An Expungement
Many of us have made an error in judgment or acted impulsively and have experienced a criminal charge. In some cases, if enough time has passed without a repeat offense, it is possible and advisable to seek expungement of your record.
A clean criminal history can open doors to a better future. Because a mark on your record can affect professional licensing, housing, academic pursuits and your relationships, it may be well worth looking into whether an expungement is an option. The Law Office of E. Gregory M. Cannarozzi offers expungement guidance.
Types Of Charges That May Be Eligible For Expungement
Not every criminal charge can be wiped from a record. However, a surprising number and variety can be expunged in certain circumstances. These typically include:
- Juvenile charges, including vandalism, underage drinking and drug charges
- Charges that were dismissed or where you were found not guilty
- Simple assault
- Traffic and municipal violations
- Disorderly conduct
- Bad check writing
- Criminal mischief
- Resisting arrest, obstruction of justice, providing false information
An expungement of your record is a second chance. Whenever you are asked about a criminal record, after a successful expungement, you can honestly answer you have no record. An expungement means that any record of your being apprehended, detained or arrested is gone from your history. An expungement also wipes clean any detention, trial or disposition of an offense. This includes court and related proceedings that you experienced as a juvenile or as an adult.
