Sealing Records for Convictions prior to July 1st 2014 for illegal possession or consumption of alcohol by an underage person

The record sealing attorneys at Schwartz and Waible can help you seal your records for being arrested, charged and even convicted of underage possession or consumption of alcohol. The law requires the passage of one year from the date of conviction, dismissal of your case, completion of a deferred sentence or conclusion of a deferred prosecution. The law also requires that you cannot be arrested for, charged with, or convicted of any felony, misdemeanor, or petty offense within the one year following the conclusion of the case involving underage possession or consumption of alcohol.

Sealing Records for Convictions after July 1st 2014 for illegal possession or consumption of alcohol, or possession of marijuana by an underage person.

The record sealing attorneys at Schwartz and Waible can help you if you have multiple convictions for illegal possession or consumption of alcohol or possession of marijuana as an underage person. The Court will automatically order the records sealed if you have only one case of this variety after all of the court orders have been complied with and all costs and fines are paid. However if you have more than one case of this type, you must file a separate petition to seal the records. The law requires the passage of one year from the date of conviction, dismissal of your cases, completion of a deferred sentence or conclusion of a deferred prosecution. The law also requires that you cannot be arrested for, charged with, or convicted of any felony, misdemeanor, or petty offense within the one year following the conclusion of the last case involving underage possession or consumption of alcohol, or underage possession of marijuana.

If the Court grants the petition to seal in either scenario, you can legally state that you do not have a record in regard to underage possession or consumption of alcohol, or possession of marijuana. Any law enforcement agency that is contacted with a non-law enforcement inquiry into these records must respond that “so such record exists with respect to such person”
