Expungement is a legal term of art that is not used in Nevada law. Generally, criminal expungement laws are designed to help specified former offenders move on with their lives without having the old criminal record inhibit them. Expungement laws balance the public safety benefit that the records provide against the public policy benefits of allowing some offenders to be more productive and free of discrimination. In Nevada, expungement laws are called record sealing.
