Can I Get This Case Off My Record?
Sealing a criminal record involves making a personís criminal history
inaccessible to the general public. However, city, county, state and federal
government and agencies, including the police and military, will have access to
and be able to review your criminal history records whether or not those records
are sealed. Expunging a record involves the court ordered physical destruction
or obliteration of a criminal history record or a portion of that record. It is
very difficult to qualify to have a record sealed or expunged. For the most
