What Criminal Records can you Expunge in Indiana?
The new Indiana Criminal Record Expungement law specifically defines which criminal records you can expunge in Indiana. Every case is different; which is why it is important to consult one of our experienced attorneys to determine whether or not you qualify for expungement. In general, however, basic charges and arrests can be expunged. This includes all misdemeanors, any past arrests that didn’t result in a conviction, class D felony cases, and some other felonies as well; depending on a person’s past convictions and current circumstance. For details about these guidelines regarding what criminal records you can expunge in Indianapolis, refer to the content below, or call our licensed criminal lawyers today.
Arrest Records (If No Conviction Resulted)
A father of two, who was arrested once in their college days for public intoxication in Indiana but never convicted, is now able to have that arrest cleared from their criminal record. This is a perfect example of how the new expungement law can help. A person arrested more than a year ago, but never convicted of a crime, can have that arrest removed from their criminal record with the help of our experienced criminal attorneys in Indianapolis.
Misdemeanor Convictions (Including Class D Felonies Reduced to Misdemeanors)
Everyone made mistakes; especially when we were young. It is common for people to have insignificant misdemeanor convictions on their criminal records; such as operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI or DUI), shoplifting, check fraud, small narcotic possession charges, battery without injury, and more. Often times, these misdemeanor convictions can be removed from a person’s record with the help of a skilled attorney. Our knowledgeable attorneys can give you the details on how to get your record cleared of misdemeanors for good in Indiana.
Class D Felony Convictions
If a class D felony was not reduced to a misdemeanor charge, a person may still have a chance to get it expunged from their criminal record in Indiana. Class D felonies such as theft, OWI/DUI with priors, intimidation, fraud, and drug possession, can all be cleared from a person’s criminal records so long as they meet all the eligibility requirements.

Other felonies, more serious than a class D felony, can be expunged from a criminal record. This does not include sex offenses, homicide, human trafficking, sex crimes, and more. Although there are more stringent requirements for this type of expungement case, a court may still rule in a person’s favor. This all depends on whether or not they meet the eligibility standards, their most recent criminal activity, and more. Call our law office for details about felony expungement in Indiana.
