Your charge may be expunged if:

  • You were arrested for a charge but the charge was never actually filed
  • Your charge was dismissed without having to do probation
  • You were acquitted after a trial
  • For a Class C misdemeanor: you successfully completed deferred disposition

If you have been charged with more than one crime in the same event, you cannot get an expunction unless neither charge resulted in a conviction. Also, you are ineligible for expunction until after the statute of limitations has run. The statute of limitations starts from the date of arrest. For misdemeanors, a person can have a dismissed charge expunged two years after the date of arrest. For felonies, the statute of limitations varies greatly depending on the specific charges. For most felonies, the statute of limitations is three years, however other felonies have different statute of limitations including 5, 7 and 10 years. Additionally, a person cannot have their record expunged if he or she has been convicted of a felony within five years of the arrest that is to be expunged.
