Your Utah conviction may be eligible for an expungement. There is a waiting period that must be met. The waiting periods range from 3 years for a Class C misdemeanor to 10 years for a DUI. Certain high-level felonies and sex offenses against minors are not eligible. Additionally, there are limits on the number of total convictions you can have on your record.
If your Utah expungement is successful, the courts will update the government agencies. Our exclusive Expedited Record Clearance Update service can clear your record from the private background check companies, which is often the place that matters most.
If the charges were not filed or dismissed or you were acquitted at trial, you are eligible for an arrest record expungement. Pleas in abeyance are also eligible to be expunged in Utah. The only waiting period requirement for an arrest expungement is that 30 days must have passed since the arrest date.
In Utah you can petition the court to reduce the level of your conviction by up to two degrees. A conviction reduction can make you eligible for an expungement sooner and could restore your firearm rights. In order to have your case reduced, you must have been sentenced to probation, completed your probation sentence and paid all court ordered restitution
If you are currently on probation, you can petition the court to terminate your probation early. Probation termination can be granted at any time in the discretion of the judge. You are also eligible if you have completed 36 months in a felony or class A misdemeanor case or 12 months in a class B or C misdemeanor or infraction case without violation.
If the BCI improperly denied your certificate of eligibility, which is required to petition for an expungement, may be able to appeal the denial with the BCI or ultimately the district court. Improper denials can result from inaccurate records or improper interpretation of the records or the law. Please see our page on Utah BCI Appeals for more information.
You may be able to petition to have your Utah juvenile record expunged. In order to be eligible you must be 18 years old and have no adult felonies or misdemeanors of moral turpitude on your record. Additionally, one year has to have passed since the juvenile court terminated jurisdiction and all fines, fees and restitution were paid.
Our eligibility test can show you what options are available to you. If you have questions, feel free to call us or chat with us online for a free, confidential consultation.
