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 received a fine greater than $500.00 and received a jail or prison term and a suspended sentence, you may be eligible after waiting five (5) years past the end of the last misdemeanor sentence so long as you have no misdemeanor or felony cases pending and no felony convictions.
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.
