What is an Expungement?
Expungement is the formal process by which all records pertaining to a criminal case or serious traffic case are removed from the public domain by a court order. However, only those cases with a certain disposition or outcome can be expunged. A case with a disposition of a dismissal or nolle prosequi, an acquittal or not guilty finding, stet, or a probation before judgment can typically be expunged without any problems.
If your criminal record is expunged, it means that it will not be available for public view, and in most cases, you can legally state that you have not been arrested or convicted of the expunged offense. It also means that your case will no longer appear on the Maryland Judiciary Case Search website. This is particularly helpful to folks with employment and housing applications.
Because the specific requirements and procedures for obtaining an expungement in Maryland can vary depending on the type of record you wish to expunge and the circumstances of your case, it is best to have the advice and assistance of an award-winning expungement attorney.
