Expunge Your Criminal Record

Most individuals convicted of crimes experience long lasting effects of having a criminal history--most often felt relative to job opportunities.

If you have been convicted of a crime, you may feel that being labeled as a "felon" or a "convicted criminal" interferes with your ability to move on and obtain a better life for your and your family. You may sense that you are still being punished long after you have repaid your debt to society. Indiana's new law addressing the expungement of criminal records might be able to provide you with some relief. The law states that "A person whose record is expunged shall be treated as if the person had never been convicted of the offense."  

To be eligible to expunge your criminal record, you must meet certain requirements. To discuss having your criminal records expunged in more detail contact Attorney Marc Lopez today at (317) 489-9611 or contact him through e-mail.

Criminal Expungement Law

Indiana passed a law on July 1, 2013 that allows individuals convicted of certain Felonies and misdemeanor crimes to expunge their criminal records.  Once these records have been expunged a person is treated as if the person had never been convicted of the expunged offense. 

How this can affect you?  If you are asked during a job interview or on a job application, employers can only ask about convictions that have not been expunged.  Expunged criminal records cannot be used against a person when they are applying for or renewing a license, permit, or certificate necessary to engage in any activity, occupation or profession.

If you want to have your criminal record expunged  and to be able to legally say, "I have never been arrested or convicted," contact Attorney Marc Lopez today at (317) 489-9611. Or you can contact him through e-mail.
