Why should I clear my conviction record

There are huge benefits to vacating your criminal convictions

  • Legally removes the conviction from your record
  • You can truthfully state on any applications (employment, student aid, housing, etc) that you have never been convicted of the vacated crime
  • Your conviction will no longer show up on the WSP Watch report or the FBI database
  • You are no longer subject to any penalties or disqualifications due to your conviction
  • Although the vacated conviction can be used in criminal prosecutions it cannot be used for enhanced sentencing penalties
