Before your record can be sealed, you must first receive a final discharge on your conviction. You are not eligible to seek expungement of a criminal conviction until after final discharge of your case.
There is also a time element involved with the expungement process. Applications for expungement can only be filed after the statutory waiting period set by the state. Ohio law states that individuals are ineligible to seek expungement until:
- One year after the final discharge of a qualifying misdemeanor charge
- Three years after the final discharge of a qualifying felony charge
The state of Ohio also names some convictions that cannot be expunged. These include OVI/DUI/DWI drunk driving offenses the majority of violent crimes and sex crimes.
