Expungement law has substantially changed within the last five years. Now, depending on the type of conviction and the amount of time that has passed since being released from probation, you may have a statutory right to get your conviction expunged from your record. Ms. Kimball knows the ins and outs of expungement law because during her eleven years prosecuting, she reviewed hundreds of petitions for expungement and wrote the briefs to oppose them. She knows what information is necessary to have your best chance at obtaining a full expungement.
Some types of convictions do not have a statutory right to be expunged, but are up to the Judge’s discretion. These expungements are more difficult to navigate. However, with the right attorney and the right information to present to the Judge, your expungement may be granted in its entirety; that means that it will be removed from not only the court’s records, but ordered to be removed from law enforcement’s records, the prosecutor’s records, the BCA’s record, your driver’s license record (if applicable), etc.
Expungement law depends on numerous factors, including:
- What type of conviction you have
- When the conviction was entered
- How long it has been since you were discharged from probation
- Are there any additional violations or offenses
- The reason you are asking for the expungement
- Proof of hardship
