Mugshot hounding you?
You are not a criminal.
Don’t get treated like one!
If you were arrested but never found guilty, you are no more a criminal than my dog. But public arrest records can still hound you, whether you’re looking for a new job, a new residence, or if someone is searching for you online. Your records remain public unless they are ordered sealed or destroyed.
Let’s set the record straight.
Expunction requires law enforcement and state agencies to destroy all records of your arrest.
Digital records are deleted and any physical records are returned to you.
The law requires online background check and mugshot companies to remove expunged information from their databases and websites.
Expunction also grants you the right to deny that you were ever arrested or prosecuted for the offense.
Eligible for expunction:
• No Charges Filed
• Found Not Guilty
• Deferred Disposition
• Deferred Prosecution
• Pretrial Diversion
If your case was dismissed after you
successfully completed deferred adjudication,
you may be eligible to have your arrest records
Law enforcement and certain state agencies can still access sealed records, but the general public, background check companies, and online mugshot websites cannot.
Working together we can petition to seal your record for most non-violent misdemeanors and felonies. Some offenses require a waiting period after release from probation.
