Expungement of a Misdemeanor Conviction

Can an unauthorized use of property misdemeanor from 2006 be expunged? There was no jail time and no trouble with the law since. You will want to refer to ORC 2953.32. Ohio is a “one shot” jurisdiction when it comes to expunging your record. This means that you may only have an eligible charge expunged if it is 1) your first conviction 2) you have no other convictions since/no charges pending and 3) one year has elapsed since the final disposition (for a misdemeanor, or three years for a felony).

You will most likely need an attorney if you want to pursue an expungement of your record. There is likely to be a hearing on the motion and there is no guarantee you will be granted the expungement even if you are indeed eligible.
