Indiana Expungement Law

A criminal record can adversely impact one’s life. Criminal marks can stain and stigmatize a person’s character and stifle their livelihood. Employment opportunities, academic access, professional certifications and other societal privileges are at risk when one has a criminal record. However, effective July 1, 2013, Indiana’s New Expungement Law allows those with prior arrest(s) records and criminal convictions to eliminate negative marks from their criminal record. Under the new law, if a person meets the certain requirements, they can petition the court for a “one-time” expungement of prior arrests and/or convictions. The law has a number of complexities that your attorney can help you understand, this will discuss the key components and answer some of your general questions. We encourage your questions and feedback and if you need an attorney to address your specific case, call 317-759-1515 or email the office.
