Justice Reinvestment Act near Bel Air, Md

Harford County Lawyer

Francis

On October 1st, 2017 the Justice Reinvestment Act (JRA) went into effect. This new law has the ability to change lives for the better in many ways none the least of which is the expansion of criminal convictions that can be expunged. The law now allows, under certain circumstances, the expungement of convictions of crimes such as alcoholic beverages citations, second degree assault, possession of CDS, possession of paraphernalia, trespass, theft, bad check, credit card fraud, rogue and vagabond, malicious burning and others.

The existence of a criminal or traffic history on a person’s record can be detrimental in employment opportunities, loan applications, social settings etc. Therefore, it is usually wise to expunge criminal and traffic charges whenever possible. Unfortunately there are a lot of misconceptions about what an expungement is, who may or should file and when to do so.

An expungement is the removal of records from public inspection. In Maryland, records may be expunged from police departments, court files, State’s Attorney records and on line case searches on the Maryland Judiciary Case Search. Each process removes very specific files and must be done through the proper agency. Persons with records must apply for expungement of each arrest based on the date of arrest and according to the disposition.

For information on what can be expunged, when can the expungement be filed, where to file and how to do so, contact Frank Henninger and the Law Offices of Henninger and Henninger, LLC at (410) 836-5300 or email by clicking here.
