In Illinois, some people who have been arrested or placed under supervision can get an expungement that destroys the legal record of such convictions and court orders, preventing anyone from learning about the event. Those who were convicted of several misdemeanor crimes or certain felony crimes can obtain a record sealing, which bars access to such legal records by employers or other parties outside of the criminal justice system.
It can take several months or longer to obtain an expungement or record sealing. If you want to obtain an expungement or record sealing, you should speak with a criminal law attorney as soon as possible.
