Iowa Expungement Definition
An Expungement is a process by which a previous offense and its conviction are sealed and inaccessible to the person's public record. An Expungement is also referred to as 'having a record sealed'.
The options for expunging or sealing a criminal record in Iowa are limited (see Iowa Expungement Limitations).
If you were convicted of a crime, your record may qualify for expungement only if:
- the offense was an eligible alcohol-related offense, or swiss replica watches
- you obtained deferred judgment at the time of your conviction and successfully completed probation.
If your record contains errors, you may also ask that it be corrected.
