Even after completion, a case continues to be a part of your life. Courts, police agencies, and professional licensing agencies all keep records of past mistakes. These mistakes follow you or your loved ones into job interviews, applications for housing, and any other scenario where your record is brought up.
Ohio law allows for most convictions, even felonies, to be removed from your record by requesting a hearing before a Judge where testimony is taken to determine whether or not an applicant is eligible. If eligible, a Judge may grant the request.
A successful motion to seal a record results in a court order to remove your name from public view and seal your arrest records in the database of the police department and Bureau of Criminal Investigations. If your motion for expungement is denied, you may be unable to re-file in the future under Ohio law. Maximize your changes of getting your record sealed and obtaining relief from past mistakes with an attorney who knows the laws and the courts.
