Nevada law (NRS 179.245) allows for those convicted of most crimes to have their record sealed after specified waiting periods have been met. Once sealed, the conviction and arrest comes off of your record and you can truthfully say that you were never convicted or arrested.
To be eligible to seal your conviction in Nevada, you must have satisfied the waiting periods, which start from the date you are discharged from probation or parole, as listed below:
You must not be convicted of any crimes during the waiting period. A person is also ineligible for record sealing if they are under indictment and have any charges pending.
Upon receiving a petition to seal your records, the court will notify the law enforcement agency that arrested you and the prosecuting attorney. The prosecuting attorney will be allowed to testify and present evidence at the hearing regarding your records being sealed.
The following convictions and the records relating to them are not eligible to be sealed:
Nevada law (NRS 179.255) allows for those who have either (1) been arrested and the charges have been dismissed, or (2) been acquitted of the charges, to have their record sealed immediately. Once sealed, the arrest comes off of your record and you can truthfully say you were never arrested.
If you have been arrested and the charges have been dismissed or you have been acquitted of the charges, you are eligible for record sealing relief as soon as the case is dismissed. If you were convicted, you must have satisfied the waiting periods listed above.
The process of sealing a Nevada criminal record is defined by statute, but there are also local rules that vary by court. In general, the process starts with obtaining the court records and accessing the case to see if extra evidence will be needed. Once that strategy of the case is set and any needed evidence is gathered, we file a motion with the convicting court. We also serve copies of the motion and all evidence on the district attorney. We also provide notice to all government agencies that have any records that may indicate that the case existed, for instance, the probation department or jail.
In most cases, the court will call for a hearing. One of our expert Nevada lawyers will attend the hearing and fight for your case to be sealed. The judges in Nevada have lots of discretion when it comes to sealing records. So, it is important to have someone who is skilled and experienced at arguing for records to be sealed.
