Sealing of Criminal Conviction Records in Colorado
Did you know that your criminal conviction records may automatically disqualify you from obtaining certain licenses, employment, and/or housing opportunities? If you were convicted of certain crimes in the past, you may still be able to get your criminal conviction records sealed and/or removed from your history despite your conviction. Certain drug crimes now qualify for record sealing, even many felony drug crimes. Let Michael T. Kossen P.C. help put you back in the position you were in before your criminal conviction so that you will have a clean criminal history moving forward.
Have a conviction that you need to conceal from work or home life? Fill out our test to see if you qualify for sealing or expungement.
What Types of Criminal Convictions Can Be Sealed?
There are several types of criminal convictions other than drug crimes that may qualify for record sealing, including certain petty offenses, municipal violations, underage alcohol and marijuana offenses, underage drinking and driving (UDD), and juvenile offenses. Certain factors will apply, including the type of crime and whether or not you were ultimately convicted, as well as your age at the time of conviction and how long ago the case was dismissed or closed (there was a final disposition and the criminal sentence was completed).
In order to apply to have your criminal conviction records sealed in Colorado, you will need to obtain a copy of the original police report and file a petition with the court. If the court grants you the seal, these criminal convictions cannot show up in your future background checks, thus improving your chances of getting that promotion or new house.
