Expunging Juvenile Records

Expunging your juvenile records can be the best choice that you ever make. If you let them, your juvenile arrests can follow you around for the rest of your life. Any time that you apply for a job, your prospective employer can find this information about you. From there, they may make their decisions based on the fact that you have a juvenile record. Nobody wants to be turned down from a job because of a few mistakes that they made when they were young.

Everyone makes mistakes. When we are young, we make even more mistakes. Sometimes this can lead to unfortunate consequences. If you would like to expunge your juvenile record, there are a few things that you should know.

Expungement is a type of lawsuit. Through this process, the person who was the subject of a criminal proceeding or investigation tries to get the records sealed or destroyed. Even though there is a criminal matter at stake, the process is a civil action. This means that the person trying to expunge his or her record becomes a plaintiff to the court.

If expungement is successful, there are two possible outcomes that depend on the jurisdiction in which your records are kept. One possibility is for your records to be completely destroyed. If this is the case, the records are physically gone and cannot be used against you ever again. The other possibility is that your records are sealed from the public. While your records still exist, they cannot be accessed or used against you except by law enforcement in certain situations. Once this happens, you do not have to admit to the expunged items unless you are being questioned under oath.

In Texas, the law will allow expungement on arrests that did not lead to conviction. If an arrest led to the arresting being found guilty, the record cannot be expunged. It is also possible to get class C misdemeanors expunged from your record as long as the defendant received deferred adjudication and completed community supervision. However, if you pled guilty or no contest or were found guilty of anything other than a class C misdemeanor, you cannot expunge it from your record.

Expungement can be a great choice that can help you a lot in life. If you or someone you know wants to get a juvenile record expunged, you should find out everything you can about the process. Click here to learn more about expungement.

    Too many false arrests in this world

    Wow the bailiffs voice sounded different at the start of the video

    If you commit a crime & you are tried, convicted & sentenced, after that you should NOT have to pay for it for the rest of your life. You paid your debt. For certain crimes, after a set amount of time your record should be sealed. Otherwise, it’s really just better to execute all felons, even non-violent & or drug offenders, because most of them can’t get a job & or will just end up back in jail. In a sense, a felony conviction = a life long sentence in addition to extrajudicial punishment.

  • fiegenfiegen:

    This girl just happened to meet a bastard. It is only fair that she tries to expunge her record.

  • Malatani M:

    It depends.

    If your criminal record is sealed or expunged, then it is hidden so that the public cannot see it in any official government records. Emphasis is on “the public.” Police and court officials can still see it. If you apply for a government job that involves security, then your security clearance investigation will find it.

    Ok, so the public cannot see your criminal record in government records. But, expungement does to delete the information from private records. If a private company (like a credit agency) recorded the information in their database before it was expunged, then the information is still publicly available from the private database.

    The Fair Credit Reporting Act puts some limits on how long the Credit Agency can retain and publish certain information. You may want to look that up on the internet to see how long they can keep your criminal record on file.

    Finally, you are entitled to a free Credit Report on yourself, once per year. Just ask for it from the big three credit agencies: Experian, Transunion, and Equifax. You may need to state that you were denied credit or denied a job in order to qualify for the fee credit report, but they never verify that statement, and they have to give you the report. Then you know what is on the reports, and you can submit a correction of any errors.
