Even after charges against you have been dismissed, you face legal obstacles in clearing your record. A criminal record can have far-reaching consequences even decades down the road when seeking employment, career promotions, or obtaining various licenses. Most people are surprised to discover that, even if your charge has been dismissed, the charge is still visible to the public. This can affect your career and your reputation with creditors, college admissions boards, and landlords. But help is available.
If your charge was dismissed or if you were found not guilty at trial, you qualify to have all record of that criminal proceeding erased through a process known as expunction. However, specific timelines apply depending on the facts of your case and it takes a knowledgeable and experienced attorney to tailor a Petition for Expunction to the facts of your case.
