Do I need an expungement if the charges were dismissed? 

If you were arrested and charges were filed, there likely be a public entry on or (feel free to look) in addition to your criminal record available to law enforcement. If your case was dismissed and the statute of limitations has expired, you may be eligible for an expungement right now.

Expunging A Dismissal


A dismissal is what happens when a judge throws out a case or pending charges. After a certain amount of time has past, you may be eligible to have these charges permanently removed. With these charges gone, it becomes so much easier to pursue a career, obtain housing. There are so many things that having a record stops a person from doing. If your charges were dismissed but the statute of limitations has not expired yet, a letter from the District Attorney’s office will be required. This letter confirms the State of Oklahoma will not be refiling charges. Obtaining a letter confirming the State will not prosecute you again is our job not yours. We will deal with the DA’s office on your behalf because we know all about expunging a dismissal and will pursue it for you.

Either way, we can help get dismissed charges erased from your criminal record and clean up your past. Contact the experts at Bury Your Past today to get started working on your case and expunging a dismissal on your behalf. Let us get your life back on track.
