Records related to criminal charges and convictions are maintained by a number of different agencies and organizations, including:
- District Court
- Bureau of Criminal Apprehension
- Police Department
- City or County Attorney’s Office
Some of these records are public, and available to anyone. Other records are private, and can only be accessed with your permission. It is not unusual for a prospective employer or landlord to ask for permission to check your private criminal records as part of a background check.
Before we begin your expungement, it is helpful to have a comprehensive picture of your criminal history, including a full understanding of what records exist and which agencies hold them. Typically the best place to start is by obtaining a report of your complete BCA records and a courthouse check of district court records.
If you are facing a criminal charge, you need professional, personal representation. Our team of attorneys will offer you Straight Talk and Honest Answers about your case.
