Does My Criminal Record Qualify to be Expunged?

Qualifying for an expungement is the first step in the sealing and expunging process.

In order to expunge your criminal record you must have received one of the following results:

  • No Action – This means that after you were arrested, the Office of the State Attorney reviewed the circumstances of your arrest and decided not to file any charges against you.

  • Nolle Prosse (Dismissal) – This means that after you were arrested, the Office of the State Attorney did file formal charges against you but later decided to dismiss them. This may be because of lack of evidence, problems with witnesses, participation in a pre-trial intervention program or many other possible reasons.

  • Acquittal by a Judge or Jury at trial – The means that you had a trial and were found not guilty of the charges brought against you by the Office of the State Attorney.

If this is you?
