Expungement & Sealing of Criminal Records in Ohio

Criminal convictions can have a far reaching and negative impact on your life long after the crime was committed. These days, many employers conduct criminal background checks as part of routine hiring practices. Criminal convictions may also impact your ability to be awarded custody of your children, prevent you from obtaining some certifications, and even limit your ability to travel freely.

Fortunately, Ohio law allows for the expungement of prior convictions or sealing of certain records. Expungement is a process in which the record of a criminal conviction is destroyed or sealed after a certain amount of time has passed. Once a case is expunged, it is deemed to never have occurred. Ohio Senate Bill (S.B.) 337 recently expanded this opportunity for many Ohioans. This can apply to both adult and juvenile offenses. The attorneys of Fox & Fox can review your case to help determine if you are eligible to have your record expunged or your records sealed.
