Recent changes in Arkansas law that took effect on January 1, 2014 have made it possible to seal many more felony criminal records that couldn’t previously be sealed. When a record is sealed/expunged it will no longer appear on your State or Federal criminal background checks and the law allows you to deny that the incident ever occurred. Some felony record can be sealed after the completion of the sentence and other require a five year waiting period. I’ve had good success getting charges sealed under the these laws. By clearing these records my clients have been the able to move forward with goals in their lives that were previously hampered by their criminal records. If you or anyone you know has a prior felony that they would like to get off of their record please give me a call. I do not charge anything for the initial consultation.
