Am I eligible for an expungement?

You will need to meet certain criteria to be eligible to have your offense expunged from your record.

Criteria include:

  • You should no longer be on probation
  • All fines, fees, and any restitution ordered must be paid
  • You must not have violated any terms of probation
  • You must not have been convicted of another crime within one year of your DUI conviction

Expungements for misdemeanor convictions can take anywhere from two to six weeks from the date of your application with the court. Felony convictions will need to be reduced to a misdemeanor requiring other criteria to be met and can take several weeks.

If you are granted an expungement, you are legally allowed to deny you have been convicted of a crime. You can still be required to disclose your conviction in some situations, however such as when completing a questionnaire for a public office.
