The consequences of having a criminal arrest record are far reaching including your ability to rent an apartment or find employment. Today, most employers and even landlords run background checks for potential candidates. Although convictions cannot be sealed or expunged for adults, if you were arrested but were not convicted of any crime, you may be eligible to request that your records be sealed and later expunged. The state will not seal more than one record, and sealing is prohibited for various serious accusations. There are specific criteria that determine whether you will qualify to apply to have an arrest record sealed or expunged.
