If you’re thinking about joining the military, criminal record expungement might be your main priority – most branches of the U.S. Armed Forces won’t accept people who have significant criminal records. And while there are some crimes you can never expunge, you may be able to clear your record so you can start your military career with a clean slate. Here’s what you need to know.Military Criminal Record Expungement:
Many people are in the unfortunate situation of not being able to clear their criminal record because they simply are not eligible to do so. Illinois law allows for an expungement or sealings in limited cases. For instances, most felonies and even misdemeanor convictions cannot be expunged. However, there are other options.
Executive Clemency or a Pardon can eventually clear your criminal record and has the same effect as an expungement. Even felony convictions can be pardoned despite being ineligible to expunge. A pardon can only be granted by the Governor – currently Pat Quinn.
