Expungement Laws Are Complicated.
Indiana law allows for the expungement or sealing of records under certain circumstances. Although legislative changes were made in 2013 that expanded the scope, the law is still very restrictive. The process can be extremely complicated, which is why it is so important to have an attorney on your side who is experienced in handling these matters.
Your eligibility for expungement can depend on several factors, including:
- Whether charges were filed or if they were dismissed
- If you were acquitted or found not guilty
- Completion of sentence requirements
- Your behavior prior to the arrest or conviction
- The nature or type of offense
- The date of the conviction
