Can you explain an “expungement”?
An expungement is destroying or sealing of your records of a criminal conviction. This includes records in files, on computer or any other records. Non-convictions are expunged. There are no fees for this type of expungement. After June 2, 2009, Magistrate Courts are required to expunge certain non-convictions automatically where the defendent had been finger printed at the time of arrest.
