Having trouble finding a job because of your criminal history? Sealing and expunging your criminal record may be a solution.
If you were a first time offender and received a withhold of adjudication, meaning you are not a convicted felon, you are eligible to seal your criminal record.
If you were a first time offender and your case was dismissed, either by attending a pretrial diversion program, by the State deciding not to go forward on your case, or by being acquitted by a jury, you are eligible to expunge your criminal record.
