Our Firm Will Help You Expunge your Record
The impact of being convicted of a crime can follow you long after you have completed your sentence. However, there is a legal option to seal records of a conviction or arrest on your criminal record. The Kuykendall Law Office will guide you through the expungement process to give you the best chances of approval.
There are two different types of expungements, and attorney Tim Kuykendall understands the differences between them. He can help you determine which one you may qualify for or which fits your case the best. The law firm will examine your case to see if it meets the qualifying criteria, which can include:
- The conviction was overturned, and charges were dropped
- Receiving a pardon
- DNA cleared you of the crime
If convicted of a violent felony in Oklahoma, you do not qualify for expungement of that conviction. You may still be eligible for expungement if your conviction was for a nonviolent felony, and the law firm will work with you to determine if you qualify.
Pursuing Criminal Record Expungement
A common misconception is that if you receive a deferment of judgment and sentence, your record will be expunged at the conclusion of your probation. That is not the case. Usually, further action is required by you or your attorney to make sure the records of your arrest and prosecution are sealed or expunged.
How your case is resolved will determine whether your records can be expunged. Therefore, it is critical that you have an attorney who knows the latest law regarding the expungement of criminal records.
