Clearing Your Criminal Record
Expungements are the most common tool for clearing a person’s Utah criminal record. Utah law also provides other potential avenues that should be considered — especially when a person does not meet the eligibility requirements for an ordinary expungement through the courts. A pardon issued by the Board of Pardons or a court-ordered reduction in the level of a conviction through a process commonly referred to as a “402 reduction” can each serve critical roles in either clearing a person’s criminal history, restoring eligibility for expungement, or restoring lost rights by reducing felony convictions to the misdemeanor level.
A clean criminal record or reduction in the level of prior convictions can open new doors and provide important opportunities. Contact us today to see how we can help you through the legal processes of clearing your record.
