In 2009 I got in an altercation with my brother and he called the cops. I was arrested and plead guilty to disorderly conduct - the description: “Disorderly Conduct-Unclassed Forfeiture. This is not a criminal offense and results only in a money penalty for this offense.”
In 2013 I got a 1st offense DUI and spent 1 year with a breathalyzer and limited driving privileges.
These offenses happened in Wisconsin. I now live in NC - is there any way to have these records sealed, expunged, or removed in any way? I was in my late 30’s when this happened, but I’ve since stabilized my life.
NC does not “seal”!records.
Both your offenses happened in WI. NC has no jurisdiction over your records; WI does so you should repost your question under WI criminal law to see if a lawyer there can offer any assistance. Good luck to you
I agree with my colleague. Wisconsin will have different rules than North Carolina about which convictions may be expunged. Here, it depends on the offense, your age at the date of offense, etc. In addition, enough time must pass since your sentence finished. I would advise speaking with a WI attorney.
