What Types of Juvenile Records Can Be Expunged?

Many types of juvenile records can be expunged, including arrests that didn't result in charges or court cases and many convictions. The types of juvenile records that you can expunge include:

  • All arrests that didn't result in a court case
  • Court cases that were thrown out or in which you were found not guilty
  • Court cases where you were sentenced to supervision and completed it successfully
  • Court cases in which the judge found you guilty of a Class B or Class C misdemeanor
  • Court cases in which the judge found you guilty of a petty offense
  • Felony and Class A misdemeanor cases in which you were found guilty, as long as it's been at least 2 years since your case ended (and you completed your sentence)

What Types of Juvenile Records Cannot Be Expunged?

You can never expunge juvenile records if you were found guilty of first-degree murder or a felony sex offense. These cases have to remain on your record.

If you were arrested for either of these things and not charged, or if you were found not guilty, the case was thrown out, or you were found guilty of another offense, you may still be able to expunge the record.
