[fa icon="plus-square"] What is a criminal record expungement and why do I want one?

Expungement is an attorney-led process that uses the Courts to erase or change criminal record(s). Expungements can erase records with OSCN.net, ODCR.com, OSBI, the Arresting Agency, the Dept. of Corrections, and at the Courthouse. Expungements can also allow you to deny that a criminal incident ever occurred, and can keep employers from denying you employment based solely on your criminal record.

Even if you can’t erase your records, you may still be able to change them with an expungement: for example, by amending your OSBI record from “Pled Guilty, 5 Year Deferred Sentence” to “Pled Not Guilty, Case Dismissed.” People seek expungement because their criminal records negatively impact their careers, educational goals, and their personal lives. To get a quick answer on whether or not you qualify for an expungement, speak directly with a Clean Slate Lawyer.

2. Court Records are available from court clerks, on oscn.net or odcr.com;
