December 11, 2009, Newsletter Issue #196: Expungement: Is it Better to Wait?

Tip of the Week

Some lawyers will recommend that you attempt to have the sentence reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor before attempting to get an expungement. A dismissed, expunged, or otherwise set aside misdemeanor looks far better on your record than an expunged felony. Remember that state laws demand disclosure of these offenses in certain cases. The route to sentence reduction and eventual expungement is longer and more costly; in the end it is worth the effort.
