We get lots of questions about this, “Can I have my Class D felony expunged?” or “Can my Level 6 felony be expunged?”
If you have a Class D felony or a Level 6 felony which cannot be reduced to a misdemeanor (see info about reducing to a misdemeanor here) and:
- Eight years has passed (it is sometimes possible to obtain the consent of the prosecutor for a shorter time)
- You are not:
- An elected official convicted of an offense while serving the official’s term or as a candidate for public office. (Expungement is still possible, see info here)
- A sex or violent offender (as defined in IC* 11-8-8-5).
- A person convicted of a felony which resulted in bodily injury to another person. (Expungement is still possible, see info here)
- A person convicted of perjury (IC 35-44.1-2-1) or official misconduct (IC 35-44.1-1-1).
- A person convicted of an offense described in:
- Killed another human being IC 35-42-1
- Engaged in Human trafficking IC 35-42-3.5
- Molested a child IC 35-42-4
- A person convicted of two (2) or more felony offenses which:
- Involved the unlawful use of a deadly weapon; and
