RECORDS THAT MAY BE EXPUNGED OR SEALED IN SOUTHERN ILLINOIS
Not every record can be expunged or sealed. For example, criminal convictions and supervisions are generally not eligible for expungement under Illinois law. However, certain special types of felony probation (such as Drug Court) are not considered to be convictions and, therefore, may be an exception to the law. Because of the many possible exceptions, it is always important to have an experienced expungement lawyer review your individual situation.
Additionally, though most felony convictions may not qualify for sealing or expungement, the following may be some exceptions:
- Class 3 or Class 4 felonies
- Certain drug-related felonies under the Cannabis Control Act2 or Section 402 of the Controlled Substances Act3
- Some prostitution-related Class 4 felonies
