Expunging a Suspended Sentence or Conviction
Don’t let a misdemeanor conviction hold you back anymore. We can help get your misdemeanor conviction off of your background check and free you from your past! Suspended sentences are “convictions” which may qualify for Oklahoma expungement under Section 18. The new law (November 1, 2016) changes the time required to wait to seek expungement.
EXPUNGEMENT OF OKLAHOMA SUSPENDED SENTENCES
If you were convicted and receive a fine of less than $501.00 without a suspended sentence or a term of imprisonment and you have paid your fines, you may be eligible for expungement as long as you have not been convicted of a felony and have no felony or misdemeanor charges pending. There is NO WAITING PERIOD if the only punishment was a fine under $501.
If successful, your arrest record and court file will be expunged and not available for public inspection. In job or college applications and other pursuits, you may lawfully state that the matter “never happened” or you may lawfully omit disclosure of the event. Expungement causes the event to be treated as null and void – as if it never happened.
We charge a “flat” or “fixed” fee for most of the 14 different types of Section 18 expungements.
If you'd like to get started with your expungement or you aren't sure if you received a conviction that applies, please get in touch with our expungement lawyers here.
