If you are looking to wipe out a minor infraction of the law that might be haunting you or keeping you from moving forward in your life, an expungement can help. This is because once an order for expungement is entered, the arrest, conviction, and any proceedings related to the offense are deemed never to have taken place. But there are exceptions.
Not Everything Is Erased!
However, there are some remnants that will be left behind, which are:
- A record of the expungement will be maintained, in case you were to apply for another one in the future;
- If you got a dismissal of an arrest that was discharged due to a Conditional Discharge, a record will be maintained for the future in case you ever apply for another Conditional Discharge; and
- The information can still be revealed if you ever seek employment to be a judge, law enforcement officer, or corrections officer.
These are reasonable exceptions, and will not tinge the benefit of the expungement for the vast majority of people who apply for them.
