Expunging Uncharged Juvenile Cases

If you were ever picked up as a minor in Illinois (under the age of seventeen) but were not charged formally you may still have a police record.

With minors the police have lots of options.  Peer jury, station adjustment, drive home to parents or work through the school police officer.  All of these are possibilities, but the contact still goes into the LEADS system (what is commonly referred to as your “record”)

These contacts usually do not interfere in a persons life, but those wishing to get governemtn clearances or join law enforcement should seriously consider expungement.

This is referred to as a catagory one expungement petition and works if any of the following are true:

 

1. You were arrested detained) but not charged?

2. You were Charged but found not guilty?

3. You were placed on court supervision and successfully terminated it?

4. You were found guilty for an offense that if you had been an adult would have been a Class B or C misdemeanor or less (disorderly conduct, possession of minimal amounts of cannabis, etc.)

If you fall into this group a category one petition can be done quickly by professionals.  For more details see our website or the government site.

We’ll be happy to help you get this straightened out so that you can get on with your life.  We excel at Illinois Expungement.
