A foolish act can continue to haunt you long after the event. Fortunately for some people in this situation, you can get a criminal record expunged or sealed. This can help prevent a routine background check from revealing this damaging information.
What is Expungement and Sealing of a Record?
The law regarding expungement and sealing is complex.
Simply stated, they can be defined as follows:
Expungement — physically destroys a criminal record. In certain circumstances (such as when you are applying for a professional license or a job in law enforcement) you must reveal the event, but the specific details do not have to be revealed. You can lawfully deny the existence of the criminal record to most private employers. Available in cases in which a person was arrested but not convicted or plead guilty to any charge or received a withhold of adjudication to the particular charge the person wants expunged.
Sealing of a Record — prevents the record from being revealed to people outside the justice system. In certain limited circumstances, it can be revealed to other people. You can get a record sealed in most cases involving a withhold of adjudication of guilt.
