Expungement of Charges – Dismissed or Found Guilty
If your misdemeanor charges were dismissed, you have the right to ask the court to expunge (remove) the charge from your record 60 days after the court’s order of dismissal was entered. The court may continue the case in order to allow the county attorney or Commonwealth attorney to respond to the expungement motion.
After the expungement is signed by the judge, all activities related to the matter will be deemed to have never occurred.
“Going forward, you will not have to disclose the charges or any facts relating to the charge on any application for employment, credit or other types of application.”
The expungement order will require that all information related to the arrest, charge or citation be removed from your record. To learn more, visit my page on the expungement process and contact me, Benham Sims, Attorney at Law, for a free consultation.

If you pleaded guilty to the original criminal charge or a reduced charge, you must wait five to seven years (depending on whether you received a suspended jail sentence or probation) on a misdemeanor to have the charge expunged.
