One of the most disheartening things that a person can experience is having a criminal record impact them for the rest of their life. Unfortunately, this is a real possibility now that so many employers, landlords and others do routine background checks. When you think about it, there isn’t a good reason why old mistakes should haunt you for decades.
Some people who have criminal records might be eligible for expungement. This process seals the criminal record so that it doesn’t show up on background searches. Getting the case expunged is akin to it never happening. The only time that the record would come up would be in very limited law enforcement applications, but these don’t occur often.
