Alabama Expungement Attorney
Exciting news came out of the legislature recently that allows for criminal records involving misdemeanors or non-violent felony convictions to be expunged. This new law allows for individuals who faced these charges but were not convicted to seek to have these records expunged or sealed or made to go away. This is great news since previously there was no way to have these arrest records removed even if the prosecutor did not pursue your case or you won at trial. You still had an arrest that a back ground check would find.
Expungements in Alabama
An expungement essentially means that the charge or arrest that you received is sealed from the public as if the incident never happened. Once you have been successful in expunging your record, you can truthfully tell potential employers that you have no criminal record. This is a great opportunity for all people looking for work, a promotion, or just trying to move on with their lives.
Some general guidelines to consider include:
Was your charge/case dismissed?
Was your charge/case no-billed by the grand jury?
Were you found not guilty at trial?
Was your charge a misdemeanor or a non-violent felony?
Did you complete some type of pre-trial diversion program?
