Do you have a criminal record that you would like to expunge? Well you can now do that in Wyoming in certain circumstances.
What is Expungement?
Expungement is the process of removing or sealing your criminal record from the public. The record does not disappear, because law enforcement will still know that it is there. However, the public cannot access the record. More importantly, you do not have to disclose those records to employers, or anyone else.
What criminal records can be expunged?
If you have been arrested, but not convicted, you can have that arrest record expunged.
A misdemeanor must be at least five years old, or one year old if you are a minor.
Felonies can be expunged if the sentence was completed at least ten years ago. There is a long list of felonies that cannot be expunged.
If you were adjudicated delinquent in a juvenile court proceeding, then you can expunge that adjudication. This is not the same as being convicted of a crime while a juvenile. You must have actually been in juvenile court.
