Misdemeanor – NO Conviction

If you were charged with a nonviolent misdemeanor, such as a Public Intoxication, DUI that resulted in no injuries or harm, a misdemeanor drug possession charge, or any other nonviolent misdemeanor, you could qualify to have those charges expunged off your record. However, your charge must have either been dismissed or you completed some type of pre-trial diversion program, drug program or any other court deferred prosecution program. Learn More.

Misdemeanor – Conviction

If you were charged AND convicted of a nonviolent misdemeanor, such as a Public Intoxication, DUI that resulted in no harm, a misdemeanor possession charge, or any other nonviolent misdemeanor, you could qualify to have that charge expunged from your record.  Because there was an actual conviction, different rules will apply than a non-conviction expungement. Learn More.

Felony – NO Conviction

If you were charged with a felony, but NOT convicted, many of the same rules apply regarding your qualifications as they do with a non-conviction misdemeanor charge.  Again, the original felony charge cannot be classified as a violent crime.  Furthermore, the felony must have either been dismissed or you completed some sort of court deferred prosecution program.  However, there is one difference.

Felony – Conviction

If you were charged with a felony AND convicted of that felony – you have a long road ahead attempting to get that felony conviction expunged from your record in Alabama.  Not that it isn’t possible – but it will be extremely difficult. The first and most important step you must achieve, is to be granted a certificate of pardon from the Board of Pardons and Paroles.  However, not only do you need a certificate of pardon, you will need a certificate of pardon that includes a restoration of civil and political rights.
