Clear Your Name With Record Expungement Or A Pardon
If you or a family member is interested in applying for a pardon or expungement of their records, get in touch with Dummier Young LLC at 205-725-6019.
What Is Expungement?
If you qualify for record expungement, your criminal records related to a particular case are erased. All arrest records and court records are destroyed, and will not show up on a background check. The alleged crime and the arrest are deemed “never to have occurred.”
- In Alabama, expungement applies only to nonviolent felonies, all misdemeanors, and other traffic and municipal ordinance violations.
- It is only applicable to persons who were acquitted at trial or whose charges were dismissed.
If you were convicted by a judge or jury, or pleaded guilty, you may not be eligible. But if you entered a plea as part of a drug court or diversion program, you may qualify for expungement if you successfully completed the program. Our attorneys can determine if meet the criteria to apply for your records to be expunged.
What Is A Pardon?
A pardon is a type of clemency or a reversal of a person’s conviction. A pardon application is typically sent to the Board of Pardons and Paroles after a sentence has been served and all other requirements have been met. A pardon does not erase the records of your case, but it clears your name as a convicted felon. If you are granted a full pardon, your civil liberties such as gun rights and voting rights are also restored. Pardons are granted more frequently than you might think. It’s worth exploring if you have served your time and want a fresh start.
