If I was arrested and not charged with a crime in California can I seal my arrest record?
In California, if you were arrested and not charged with a crime, you may be able to have your arrest records sealed. The process is called “arrest record sealing” or “arrest record destruction.”
Generally, if you were arrested and not charged with a crime, or if the charges were later dismissed, you can petition the court to seal your arrest records. Once the records are sealed, they will not be available to the public and will not show up on background checks.
It’s important to note that certain types of arrests, such as for certain sex crimes, cannot be sealed in California, and that the process for sealing an arrest record can vary depending on the county and the specific circumstances of the arrest. It is recommended to seek legal advice for this process if you are in California.
