12 Questions Answered

Q. I have a agv. assault and child endangering from 24 years ago can I have it taken off my record?
A: You may want to look into sealing your record. A person can be eligible to seal their record provided they have not more than 1 felony, 1 felony and 1 misdemeanor, or 2 misdemeanors. If the aggravated assault carried a mandatory prison term, or if the child endangering was a felony, you will not be eligible to seal your record. If the child endangering charge was a misdemeanor, you may be eligible to seal your record. You will want to contact an attorney and discuss this with them.
Q. if you are charged with 2911.11 and on parole how many years can you get
A: 2911.11 is aggravated burglary. This charge is a 1st degree felony, which carries a prison term of 3-11 years. The court may seek to revoke the individual's parole, but the court will not increase the sentence for aggravated burglary based on revocation of post-release control.
Q. I was charged with drug abuse for picking up a pot pipe that was not mine. 4 years ago. I cant get a job. How can I get
A: It appears that you were convicted of drug paraphernalia, a 4th degree misdemeanor. You must wait at least 1 year to expunge your record and not commit any further criminal acts. The process for having your criminal record expunged by obtaining a final order of conviction from the clerk of courts begins by obtaining a certified copy of the Judgment Order of Conviction. They should be able to give you a certified copy for a small fee. Make sure you have the case number. Fill out the two forms they will send you ("Application for Sealing of a Criminal Record" and "Judgment Entry for Sealing"). Make 3 copies of these forms, have about $50 on hand, and give the copies to the clerk of courts. The court will set a hearing date and be prepared to show up to court and tell the judge your story. The judge has the discretion as to whether your application will be granted.
