Ohio Expungement/Sealing of the Record

Posted on: May 14, 2012

An offense occurring years ago may simply be embarrassing or may be a serious impediment to employment or educational opportunities. In today's electronic and information society, access to an individual's prior history and criminal record has never been greater. In Ohio, if you qualify as a "first offender," you may be eligible to have the record of your conviction sealed or "expunged."

Individuals with a misdemeanor conviction generally must wait one year from the date of discharge to file an application to seal the record, while individuals with a felony must wait three years. Some convictions may not be expunged, including OVI/DUI offenses and felonies that include a mandatory term of incarceration.

For an evaluation of your expungment matter and a determination of whether you are eligible contact the Law Offices of Richard G. Wendel, II at (513)632-5317.
