What Cases Can Be Restricted?
If you were arrested and the case was dismissed, your arrest information is most likely eligible to be restricted. On the other hand, only certain convictions can be restricted. Felony convictions cannot be restricted; however, if you entered your plea under the First Offender Act then you are eligible to have your case discharged, which will remove the information from your criminal history. Certain misdemeanor convictions are eligible for restriction, but only if you were under the age of 21 when you were convicted. Even if your case has already been restricted from your criminal history or if you were discharged as a First Offender, your court records may still be accessible through the Clerk’s office, Sheriff’s department and the internet. We can help restrict all of your case information so that it cannot be viewed by employers, neighbors and the general public.
