As the other answer stated, Alabama does not currently have a law permitting expungement of criminal records. However, a bill that would permit expungement has been introduced into the Alabama legislature several times in recent years. I would encourage you to call your state representative and state senator, and ask them to try to enact the expungement law in Alabama during this legislative session. The only way it will become law is if enough citizens demand it.
Good luck to you.
