Is burglary eligible for expungement in a juvenile case? I don't have any convictions as an adult.

I'm 22 and was charged with burglary as a juvenile and want to know if I can have my record expunged. I don't have any other offenses and it's been like 6 years.

  1. Yes, provided that this took place in juvenile court and you were not charged as an adult, you can have this record expunged. Keep in mind that expungements are discretionary and Just because your record is eligible does not mean that the judge will grant it. Consult an attorney for the factors that judges will typically consider.
