An Expungement can Give Nevada Residents New Hope
• The type of offense that was committed
• Whether a sentence was successfully completed
• Amount of time that has elapsed since the offense
• Age of the perpetrator when the act took place
In order to get a record expunged, the individual must first petition the court for relief. He or she must also show the arrest meets all the requirements for expungement, to include any waiting periods spelled out in Section 179.245 of the Nevada Revised Statute.
After an expungement, individuals can legally answer “no” when asked whether they have been previously arrested. There is only one shot at wiping the slate clean, which is why an attorney should be consulted for assistance.
