Expungement

Is your criminal record haunting you?

Often times, I’ll ask a jury panel if they are proud of the fact that they have no criminal record. Everyone readily agrees with the importance of maintaining a clean record. Even one smudge on a criminal report follows you throughout life and causes significant financial harm, personal loss and embarrassment. These days, every employer asks about your criminal record. In fact, every employer checks a potential employee’s criminal record since it is so easy and inexpensive to do so with the advent of internet applications. A criminal conviction can affect your ability to obtain employment, education, credit and financial assistance. Many apartment complexes will not rent an apartment to someone with a record.

The consequences of having a criminal record will last with you as long as the criminal record exists. The process of entirely removing a person’s criminal record is called an expungement. An expunction is a powerful remedy. Immediately upon issuance of the District Judge’s order to expunge, it becomes illegal for anyone to disclose your record. All agencies who had any contact with you during the arrest, charging process, prosecution, bonding or booking must completely destroy all trace of your existence in their system . If you are eligible to expunge your criminal record, you should immediately contact a criminal defense attorney specializing in criminal record expungement like the lawyers at Chernoff Law.
