Many criminal and traffic charges may be eligible to be expunged depending on the disposition. A case that is dismissed or a case in which the person is found “not guilty” can be eligible to be immediately EXPUNGED. Other matters that are either indefinitely postponed and if the finding was “guilty” but the court offered Probation Before Judgment (PBJ) can be petitioned to be expunged after a period of time. Unfortunately, a PBJ on a Maryland DUI/DWI can not be expunged. Ever.
It is important to recognize that an expungement does not “make the case go away". It does mean that the matter is not available on publicly available Maryland sources, such as case search. The matter may still be viewable on privately run websites and if it has been entered into federal or other state’s databases, it can will still available.
