Attorneys at Tiftickjian Law Firm have been taking advantage of recent changes to Colorado law that simplify the sealing of criminal records. As of August, Colorado now allows for a case to be sealed through the original criminal case, rather than through a separate civil filing. This saves both time and money for defendants who qualify under specific and limited circumstances. A person is eligible to petition to seal his or her records if charges were never filed, if charges were filed, but all were subsequently dismissed, or if the defendant was found not guilty of all charges at trial. There are some exceptions to these rules, especially if your case involved a conviction for a controlled substance. For more information as to whether or not your case may qualify to be sealed, contact us or visit our main website.
