EXPUNGING CRIMINAL RECORDS IN UTAH
After filing for expungement, the Bureau of Criminal Information will screen you for arrests in other states in order to approve or deny your application. If you are deemed eligible, the case can commence from there. Infractions and traffic offenses may be expunged without limit in most cases. In some situations, your arrest may be able to be expunged within just 30 days, such as if your case was dismissed, you were acquitted, the prosecutor decided not to file charges, or the statute of limitations already passed.
Other crimes require a certain period of time in the state of Utah before they can be expunged:
- DUI and other traffic offenses associated with alcohol / drug use - 10 years
- Eligible felonies - 7 years
- Class A misdemeanors - 5 years
- Class B misdemeanors - 4 years
- Class C misdemeanors - 3 years
