Expungement is the sealing of a criminal record so it is not publicly available. The statutes authorizing expungement are Ohio Revised Code
sections 2953.32 & 2953.52. This area of the law changes often, and it is recommended that you consider consulting an attorney to help you
with the expungement process.
If you wish to file an expungement, you may download the application form from this site or obtain one from the court. The application must be
notarized and filed with the court along with a non-refundable $50.00 filing fee. Once the application is filed, the matter is set for a hearing
at which time the judge will grant the expungement if everything is in order. Once the expungement order has been signed, the court seals its
record and will also send a copy of the order to any other agency that had knowledge of the charge so that their record will also be sealed.
