Can I get my felony expunged?
Question Details: Once my sentence is served, is it possible to get this felony expunged or sealed from my record? I have a charge of Conspiracy/Felony and received 5 years suspended and probation for 5 years that will be soon off of it.
In RI, a person who has been convicted of a felony (or misdemeanor) offense and who has not been previously convicted of a crime (i.e. a firt-time offender) "will be eligible for either a Motion to Seal" or "Motion to Expunge". The exception is if their conviction was for a crime of violence. Here is a link to an article that you will find to be of help: http://ccresourcecenter.org/state-restoration-profiles/rhode-island-restoration-of-rights-pardon-expungement-sealing/
