State Law Allows For Clearing Criminal Records

While you may be reformed, your criminal history may still be haunting you. There is no reason why you should live with a criminal history forever. As an experienced criminal defense lawyer, I am able to help clients with criminal record clearing and expungements. Clients trust me, Jacklyn Bentley, with all types of criminal issues, including requests for clearing their records.

According to the California courts, expungement (also referred to as criminal record clearing or sealing) “is a legal process through which a conviction or plea in a criminal case (guilty or no contest) is set aside and the case is dismissed. It relieves the defendant of certain penalties and disabilities that result from a criminal action, such as having to divulge a criminal record on employment applications or in other similar situations.”

What Happens After An Expungement

In many cases, after your criminal record has been expunged, you can truthfully say you have never been arrested or convicted of the crime on a job, school or other application. By expunging a crime from your record as soon as you are eligible, you can begin your fresh start.

If you have questions or concerns about criminal record clearing, I can help. Using my experience handling expungements and my hands-on approach to each client’s case, I can assist you in understanding if your case is eligible for clearing and how it may impact your life. There are certain case types that cannot be expunged. I can assess your situation and determine how we can move forward in order to protect your future.
