I found your site looking for help with expungment. I received a first time felony, due to the fact that I was using meth. I was lost and did things that I really had desperate means to find more. I caught a charge in Colorado and did time for felony burglary 2 of building. I picked up my number and finished my time, but am finding it hard to get a job. I changed my life have a house a wonderful wife and child. I would like to know how to, if I am able to, expunge my record out of Colorado. Can it be done and if so how? I managed a tire shop out of Colorado with my felony, and now live in MN. I'm trying to obtain a job with another tire company that has a background check and would like to know how I should approach this matter could you help with this? Please let me know what steps I should take if there are any?
Thank you for your time.
I am not a legal professional and therefore not prepared to give legal advice but my understanding is that expungement is only available in Colorado for cases that have been dismissed.
If your conviction is more than ten years old, you may apply for a pardon. Unfortunately, pardons are rare.
Ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs often require legal assistance. You may find low-cost legal help at your local legal aid office. You can find the office nearest you in you local phone directory.
I hope this helps.
