An expungement removes the record of an arrest and court proceeding from law enforcement and court records, both public and those kept with the court. Eligibility to apply for expungement of a Maryland criminal case depends on a lot of different things.
- What types of crimes and section of the law were you charged with?
- What happened when the case went to court?
- Were you found guilty?
- Were you found not guilty?
- Were the charges against you dismissed or a nol pros entered?
- Was your case placed on the Stet docket?
- Did you receive a Probation Before Judgment?
- How long was your sentence?
- How long was your probation, supervised or unsupervised?
- Were you charged with a new crime after this case?
