What to Know about Determining Conviction Sealing Eligibility
There are virtually thousands of substances that an individual may be criminally charged within the United States, and Colorado is no exception. Whether you were convicted of possessing, distributing, or manufacturing methamphetamine, ecstasy, or a hallucinogen, you may be eligible to seal your drug conviction records from the general public. Were you arrested but not ever charged with a crime? Was the case dismissed against you? Were you found not guilty?
While there are some limitations as to the type of drug conviction that may be sealed, time is also a huge factor in determining your eligibility. At least 10 years need to have passed since the end of your criminal proceedings and you cannot have been charged or convicted of a crime since. Your petition to seal your drug conviction records must be filed in the same county where your records are located and may be filed once per year.
