How can I clear my record after a Las Vegas criminal charge?
Even if your case is dismissed, the only way to completely clear your record from police and government databases is through the process of criminal record sealing. With more than 80% of employers conducting criminal background checks, it has become necessary to pursue record sealing in order to move forward in life. You will generally have the right to seal if your case was dismissed as a result of mistake or lack of probable cause. You will also have the right to seal if you are found “not guilty” after a trial. You may also be able to seal your record after a conviction depending on the crime you were convicted of and how long it has been since the conviction. A successful record sealing will allow you to legally tell employers, friends and family that you have not been convicted of a crime. You may become eligible for student loans, housing assistance and professional licenses and certificates as well.
