Full record expungement is the most difficult type of expungement to obtain because it’s the most thorough. This expungement will remove your criminal record from arresting agencies, the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation’s records, and the court’s records. In addition, when asked if you have a criminal record, this expungement allows you to answer, “no.”
In order to qualify for a full expungement, there are twelve qualifying situations a person can fall under. You’ll qualify for a full expungement if:
A deferred sentence is a time limit set by the judge in which your criminal record will be kept on filed until expungement will be allowed. For instance, you can avoid jail time by getting a deferred sentence of five years on a drug possession charge. During this time, you’ll need to abide by whatever the judge orders, which can include probation, community service, and staying out of trouble.
If you complete the sentence successfully, your record will be expunged.
