Are You Eligible For Expungement?
Unfortunately, not all offenses qualify to be cleared. The law only applies in certain circumstances.
You may be eligible to petition for an expungement if you were charged with a crime and:
- Your case was dismissed, or
- You were the victim of identity theft and the person actually criminally charged used your information without consent
If your offense qualifies for an expungement, you must petition the court in the city or county where your case was acquitted or dismissed. A copy of your request will be served to the attorney for the Commonwealth of the city or county, and they have 21 days to respond.
After filing your petition, you may be scheduled for a hearing, during which a judge will decide whether or not to grant your expungement. If it is granted, your criminal record will be cleared.
