Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) October 18, 2016
October 18, 2016 marks one year that WipeRecord, a division of Eastman Meyler, PC, has been expunging Indiana criminal records. One year of helping clients move forward in life without the heavy burdens that go along with having a criminal record. It also marks one year that WipeRecord has helped Indiana residents restore their firearm rights.
“Having a criminal record certainly makes things difficult and can put restraints on so many aspects of life that others take for granted,” says Sam Eastman, partner at Eastman Meyler, PC. “A criminal record can prevent you from getting the job you deserve, the housing you want, obtaining professional licenses, qualifying for government services and programs, and many other life-changing opportunities that would otherwise be available. Thankfully, Indiana State law permits the expungement of many criminal records, typically allowing an individual to legally state that they have not been convicted of the expunged criminal offense.”
Indiana has some of the best laws for expunging criminal records in the country. Most arrest records which did not result in a conviction can be expunged, as long as certain legal requirements are met. In addition, convictions for most misdemeanors and some Class D felonies can be sealed. Even some serious felonies can be sealed as well. Indiana also allows for residents to restore their firearm rights so long as certain requirements are met.
Over 33 percent of Americans have some sort of criminal record. Unfortunately, this statistic means that much of the country’s population is kept from reaching their full potential. This reality has legitimate consequences which damages the economy and cripples the success of the nation as a whole. Using traditional resources, the process of expunging or sealing a criminal record can be complex and costly, making it difficult to gain access to such relief for those with whom the laws are intended to help. Within a few short years, WipeRecord's growing team of dedicated attorneys and staff has helped provide such relief to countless people across the country by increasing awareness to these services, reducing their costs, and making the process much easier and accessible to the public.
