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 OSCN.net or ODCR.com (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 expunging the dismissal right now.
Expunging A Dismissal
A dismissal is what happens when a judge throws out a case or pending charges. Additionally, expunging a dismissal is having the arrest removed from your record entirely. After a certain amount of time has passed, you may be eligible to have the charges permanently removed. With the charges gone, it becomes so much easier to pursue a career, obtain housing, and live a full life.
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 yet expired, 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.
