Having an arrest or conviction on your record will haunt you far longer than the initial criminal consequences will last. Even years later, you may find that employers, landlords, or other individuals deny you for having a record. When a background check is done on your name, they will be able to see the public information about your crime. If you are interested in finding relief through having your record sealed or expunged, reach out to a Weston criminal defense attorney from the Law Office of Kevin F. Moot.
There are certain types of convictions which can never be expunged from your record, such as certain felonies and sex crimes. However, there are certain crimes and circumstances which may qualify for expungement.
Once your petition is granted, your record is expunged or sealed, which means that it can no longer be accessed by the public. If someone runs a background check on you, it will not show that you have a conviction or an arrest on your record.
This can allow you to have a fresh start and an opportunity to re-build your life without your past haunting you. You may even be able to seek employment or educational opportunities which would have been affected by having a record. Our Weston criminal defense attorney is here to answer your questions and guide you through the steps.
