Expungement and Sealing of Juvenile Arrest and Criminal Records
Juvenile arrest and criminal records are supposed to be private records that are inaccessible to the general public. In spite of the confidential nature of these records, these supposedly “private” records can still affect you long into adulthood in a variety of ways. Certain applications for employment and educational opportunities ask questions in their application process that put you in the difficult position of either disclosing the confidential information associated with these records or not answering the application truthfully.
You may also be prohibited from purchasing or possessing a firearm based upon your past juvenile delinquency records. However, certain juvenile arrest and criminal records may be expunged or sealed in Colorado. Let the office of Michael T. Kossen P.C. help you get your past juvenile records expunged or sealed so that they do not affect you well into your adulthood.
Find out if you can seal your juvenile record.
Determining Eligibility for Sealing Your Records
Many factors will determine your eligibility for expunging or sealing your juvenile arrest and criminal records in Colorado. You may be eligible if you were found not guilty or the case was dismissed, a certain amount of time has passed since your conviction and you have not committed another crime since, and/or you have successfully completed your parole supervision. However, please be advised that aggravated or violent juvenile offenders or juveniles who were charged as adults or who committed a crime of violence or an offense involving unlawful sexual behavior may not be eligible for expungement regardless of how much time has passed.
