Great news! Ohio has just greatly expanded eligibility for sealing the record and expungement. Prior to October 29, 2018, a person could not expunge or seal any of their criminal convictions if they had more than two total convictions. As of now, the law has been expanded to allow a person with up to five total convictions to seal their record in some circumstances.
Ohio expungement, or technically sealing the record, is the only practical way to remove a conviction from your record. Once a conviction is sealed/expunged it is removed from all public records searches and can only be accessed in very rare circumstances. Sealing the record can open up a new world of career opportunities by allowing you to legally answer “No” when asked by potential employers if you have been convicted of a crime. It can also restore gun rights and even allow you to get a Concealed Handgun License (“CCW”).
