Expunge Your West Virginia Record. Over 100 Criminal Offenses Expunged.
A criminal record can impact the rest of your life. It can prevent you from holding certain jobs, obtaining licenses, finding a place to live, getting credit or a loan, or being accepted into certain schools and colleges. A criminal record can also have a negative impact on your social life and standing in the community.
Even if a criminal charge is dismissed or dropped, arrest records and case information can still remain on an individual’s criminal record. This information is visible on a basic background check. Employers, lenders, landlords, and institutions can access your criminal record and often perform background checks.
Am I Eligible for Expungement?
At The Moore Law Firm, we know that people make mistakes. Simply because a person has been charged or convicted of a crime does not make them a bad person. Those past mistakes should not follow you for the rest of your life. We have helped many people over the years expunge their criminal records.
Depending on the type of charge or conviction, you may be eligible to have your criminal record expunged. Numerous crimes are eligible for expungement, including:
Can a Misdemeanor be Expunged?
In West Virginia, a misdemeanor can be expunged under certain circumstances. An individual can petition for an expungement one year after the completion of any incarceration or supervision for a single misdemeanor conviction. For multiple misdemeanor convictions, the wait time between the completion of the sentencing and when you qualify for expungement is two years.
In some circumstances, however, individuals may not be eligible to have their misdemeanors expunged from their criminal history. Some misdemeanor charges, such as driving under the influence and sex crime offenses, do not qualify for expungement. It is important to understand all the requirements and restrictions associated with attempting to have a misdemeanor expunged in West Virginia before filing any paperwork. An experienced West Virginia expungement attorney can help you navigate these laws and review your case to determine if you are eligible to have your record cleared.
