How A Record Affects People’s Futures
A criminal record can hinder every aspect of your life.
At the Tibble Law Office, P.C., we believe that you should not have to live with the long-lasting repercussions of a criminal conviction, especially if you were acquitted or your case was dismissed.
When you have a criminal conviction on your record, it can prevent you from:
- Getting hired
- Receiving promotions at work
- Living in certain establishments
- Owning specific items, like guns
- Being accepted into graduate school or the military
- Maintaining professional licenses
Fortunately, you may not have to live with the negative results of a criminal conviction.
Expunging Your Criminal Conviction
If you have a conviction on your criminal record, attorney Cody Crane may be able to secure an expungement of your charge.
When a conviction is expunged from your criminal record, it means it will be erased. You can then legally answer “no” to questions regarding a criminal conviction on your record.
While expunging a conviction may clear your criminal record, it is only an option for certain types of misdemeanor and felony convictions, and can only be done once. This one-time expungement is possible five years from the date of your sentence, discharge from probation, or release from prison/jail, whichever happens latest.
Drunk driving convictions, however, cannot be expunged.
Expungement laws may be changing so please reach out in the near future for the updated laws.
