In Las Vegas, we use a slightly different process from expungement, called “sealing.” This means that a recorded law violation becomes sealed from the public record, and is not accessible through normal means. In the case of felonies, there is a time period that one must wait in order to petition to have a record sealed depending on the severity of the offense. In order to determine if a felony record expungement attorney is right for you, we have provided the necessary waiting periods below.
Category A Felonies; violations of NRS 200.408 (wrongful drug administration resulting in a violent crime); or violations of NRS 205.060 (burglary): The client must wait until 10 years after release from custody, parole, or probation.
Violation of NRS 422.540 to 422.570 (false claims; unauthorized forgery, inaccurate applications, reports, or invoices; violations regarding the sale, purchase, or lease of goods or services; inadequate record-keeping, or intentional destruction of records): client must wait until seven years after release from custody, or until end of suspended sentence.
Category B, C, and D Felonies (if not listed previously): The client must wait until five years after the date of their release from custody, parole, or probation.
Category E Felonies: The client must wait until two years after release from custody, parole, or probation.
It is important to note that the following felonies are not eligible for sealing:
- A crime that is committed against a child.
- A crime that is classified as a sexual offense.
- Felonies in violation of NRS 484C.110 NRS and 484C.120 (driving a commercial or noncommercial motor vehicle while under the influence), and NRS 33.018 (domestic violence)
- A felony in violation of NRS 484C.430, where death or substantial bodily harm is a result.
However, if your previous offense falls into one of the other categories listed above, and you have waited the required amount of time, a felony record expungement attorney is a lawyer you need.
