The Expungement and Record Sealing process is also available for other types of criminal records, Sealing of a Criminal Record, also known as Expungement of a Criminal Record is a legal proceeding to remove records of dismissed charges, no bill, bond forfeiture, as well as minor misdemeanor, misdemeanor or felony charges. Under the Ohio Expungement Statute, an “Eligible Offender” can have all references to public criminal records erased and the court file sealed. Expungement is authorized by statutes of the Ohio Revised Code, sections 2953.32 and 2953.52.
Sealing of court files prevents criminal court files from being considered in employment, renting, housing, student loans, receiving a loan, or owning a firearm. This is possible because an expungement removes public records of the offense and the court files are sealed and made inaccessible. Clearing of criminal records will allow a person to pass criminal background checks, and increases the ability to obtain or maintain employment. (There are some exceptions for certain types of employment.) Expungement and record sealing can remove the following items from minor misdemeanor cases, misdemeanor cases, and felony cases.
- charges files
- dismissed charges
- not guilty findings
- no bills by grand jury
