Expunging a Sex Offense
Some sex offenses are eligible for expungement. Sex crimes are considered by most to be the most despicable crimes committed. We may be able to help clear these from your record depending on when they occurred.
For sex crimes before 1998 that resulted in a deferred sentence, we may be able to help either under Section 18 or Section 991 – again depending on the crime charged, the facts supporting the charge, and the result achieved in your original criminal case. Under Section 18, an expungement is still subject to the judge’s discretion.
If your sex offense was after 1998, it is highly unlikely that you would qualify. Even if your offense was before1998, if you were convicted (served time or received a suspended sentence), there is probably little that can be done because certain types of expungements are discretionary to the court. We simply have to evaluate each situation on a case-by-case basis.
The new law does not change the expungement options for sex offenders; however, there are some new cases decided by the Oklahoma Courts that may help Sex Offenders get their records corrected.
Fees are determined on a case-by-case basis. Sorry, but no “fixed fees” for this type of expungement.
