Record Clearance

Adults (18 years of age and older) convicted of a crime may not have their record sealed. Under certain circumstances the conviction may be set aside, and the case dismissed by the Court. The record clearance does not keep the offense from serving as a prior conviction in a later criminal proceeding. Court appearance and legal representation are not required, and the process may take up to six months.
