Let’s say you had a domestic violence charge and you get a withhold of adjudication and six months’ probation, you still won’t get that charge sealed or expunged off your record. Expungements and sealments cannot be used for crimes of violence, trafficking any kind of controlled substances, and any kind of child abuse or sexual batteries.
That’s why when you are investigating this particular law, it is important to have an attorney. This is because there are all these little nuances that you’ve got to be aware of. If you try to do it on your own, you may be successful but you might not. You’ve got to understand what you’re able to do and you’re not able to do in order to ultimately, hopefully, get an order that is expunging or sealing your record.
