You have completed your probation with a clean record, or you have served your sentence years ago and stayed on the straight and narrow ever since. However the past continues to haunt you. Despite your best efforts to make amends, you still cannot secure gainful employment because of a recent conviction or one that is twenty years old.
Felons cannot purchase or use firearms. Felons must wait a long time before they are able to vote again. Felons must inform prospective employers of their past actions, even from years ago. In an increasingly digital world, the Internet and background checks make it impossible to forget the past.
It’s time to get your life back. NOW is the time for a pardon or expungement.
Pardons are typically presented for older felonies where you can prove to the State of Oklahoma that you have been an honest and productive citizen since the crime and no longer deserves to have the “felon” stigma follow you.
Expungements are used typically for misdemeanors where you have remained clean and crime-free during your sentence and probation. Afterward, you can apply for an expungement to remove the crime from your record.
Andrew & Salmon can help you with either of these procedures to return your record to what it deserves to be. With our help, you may be able to remove the blight of a felony or misdemeanor from your record and get back to a normal life. Your chances of a pardon or expungement vary depending on the length of time and type of charge, so it is critical that you have a knowledgeable Oklahoma criminal defense attorney to represent your interests.
