How to Clean Your Criminal Record in Orange County

Do You Have Past Arrests or Convictions You Want to Clear?

While you may have moved on from a criminal conviction in your past, your criminal record hasn't. In fact, even if you were simply arrested and never charged with or convicted of a crime, you will have that arrest report on the record. Unfortunately, your record is not something that simply clears itself with the passage of time. Rather, you need to take deliberate action and erase your criminal past through a process known as expungement.

What Is an Expungement?

While an expungement does not actually destroy records, it does extract and isolate them, and prevents them from being disclosed under most circumstances. One of the main benefits of having your record expunged is that you can legally state you have no conviction for that particular criminal offense when asked about your record. There are some exceptions to this rule, including if you are applying to a law enforcement agency or a city, county, or state public office or job.

  • An expungement extracts and isolates all of the following from court correctional facilities or law enforcement agencies:
  • Criminal history
  • Complaints
  • Warrants
  • Arrest reports
  • Commitments
  • Fingerprints
