5 felonies in Ohio have nm expunged for $50.00

Postby Bruenor » Tue Nov 06, 2018 4:23 pm

I don't recall seeing anything on this legislation. Looks like they tried to narrow the scope. not sure what affect it would have on firearms ownership.

https://www.news5cleveland.com/news/loc ... gement-law
A new Ohio expungement law that quietly went into effect last week gives people with five felonies a chance to seal their criminal records.

The changes-- a direct result of the opioid epidemic-- could give a fresh start to those who have been convicted of drug, theft and other offenses.

Anyone convicted of first, second or third degree felonies would be disqualified from seeking expungement. Those who committed misdemeanors or lower-level felonies involving violence or sex crimes would also not be eligible.

Under the old law, people with up to two misdemeanors and no felonies or one misdemeanor and one felony could make a request to have records sealed.

Under the new law, people with no more than five felonies of the fourth or fifth degree or unlimited misdemeanors (excluding crimes of violence and sex offenses) could pay $50 and petition the court for expungement.

A person with an expunged record would not have to admit to the past crimes on a job application. It would be as if the convictions never happened and the public would no longer have access to court information.

But 27 years after two DUI (they called them that back then) they cannot be sealed or expunged.

No, DUI is politically incorrect.

It says unlimited misdemeanors as long as they are not sex crimes or crimes of violence - I think you probably could get them sealed / expunged.

That is an interesting question.

What about travel to Canada with expunged DUI ?? Now as I understand it I need to bribe the Canadians to consider me rehabilitated for those 2 DUI way back then.

Can I get my OVI expunged?
Short answer, no. In Ohio, the law currently allows a person with one eligible felony and one eligible misdemeanor conviction to have the records sealed. The statute allowing convictions to be sealed has some exceptions. One important one is that no traffic offenses can be sealed. An OVI or DUI in Ohio is a traffic offense. The statute also says that a DUI or OVI is specifically not able to be sealed or expunged.

Given that it says "one eligible felony and one eligible misdemeanor" it appears to be based on the old law. I don't know if the new law that just took effect changes the ability to expunge an OVI conviction.

Alcohol is a drug, and it allows the expungement of drug convictions so...

or am I stretching that a bit too far.

According to what I am reading it is a "traffic violation" so cannot be sealed or expunged. Multiple DUI can escalate to felony level, maybe those can be sealed ??
