What Is Expungement?

Getting your criminal record expunged means it is getting removed entirely as if nothing ever happened. Sound pretty nice, right?

Overall, it is. But there are limits. First, not all crimes can get expunged. Also, your criminal record could still be available as a public record, as an expungement doesn’t completely erase your record from the press, Google or social media.

But on a lighter note, when you’re looking for jobs, you can legally say that you did not commit a crime if an employer asks. Further, an expungement broadens your opportunities for school, housing, financial aid and stability.

Eligibility for Expungement in Indiana

Certain crimes can get expunged from your record:

  • You were arrested or charged for a crime that did not lead to a conviction or your conviction was overturned by an appellate court
  • You were convicted of a misdemeanor or a Class D/Level 6 felony that was reduced to a misdemeanor
  • You were convicted of a Class D/ Level 6 felony that did not result in bodily injury
  • You were convicted of a felony that resulted in bodily injury or serious bodily injury
    • Unlike the previous matters, if your expungement application is granted, your record will remain available to the public and on your criminal history report, but it will be marked as “expunged”

To be eligible, the following must apply (in most cases):

  • No charges are currently pending
  • Your arrest or charge did not result in a conviction or your conviction was overturned by an appellate court
  • You’re not currently in a pretrial diversion program
  • You met your waiting period requirement
  • The prosecutor consents to your expungement in writing
