Expungements are extremely important is today’s economy. First, in a tough job market employers can be very picky as to who they hire. All things being equal, the last person they’d hire is a person with a criminal record. There is no amount of explaining that will make a former convict a prospective employee. Getting your criminal record officially dismissed is the first step in creating an even playing field. An expungement, in most cases, allows you to legal answer that you’ve never been convicted of a crime before…on most job applications.
