For many people, one of the most significant penalties occurs long after the fines have been paid, the jail time has been served and the probationary period has ended. This penalty involves the criminal record that remains long after a crime has been committed and the penalties have been paid. If you have made one mistake that resulted in criminal penalties, this could scar your reputation for the rest of your life.
The rules of expungement are complicated, with the possibility for expungement depending on a number of factors. This is not an option for OVI/DUI and it is only available for first and only criminal charges.
“I have seen a great deal of expungement cases. If you contact me, I will evaluate your case and explain your options to you. If there is a way to expunge your charges, I can find them for you.” ∙ Matthew T. Ernst, Attorney at Law
