Having a conviction on your record can make getting an education a little more complicated. Your eligibility for federal aid can be affected by a criminal record, although that depends on the type of conviction you have.

Are you incarcerated?

If yes, then you will have limited eligibility for the federal student aid program. You cannot get a federal pell grant nor a federal student loan. However, once you are released, most of these limitations will be removed. Limitations will be kept for sexual offenses and drug-related offenses, but federal work study (which provides tuition funds based on work) may be your best option if that is your scenario.

Are you on probation or parole?

Yes, you may receive consideration for all forms of federal aid. But remember, if your were convicted of a drug-related offense, or if you are subject to an involuntary civil commitment for a sexual offense, your eligibility may be limited to the federal work study program only.

Do you have a drug conviction (misdemeanor or felony)?

You’ll want to check out the FAFSA fact sheet, The FAFSA Facts for Students with Drug-related Convictions. This guide basically states that you may have to undergo a suspension for federal aid. It further states that if your eligibly for federal aid has been suspended due to a drug conviction, you can regain eligibility early by successfully completing an approved drug rehabilitation program or by passing two unannounced drug tests administered by an approved drug rehabilitation program. After 2 convictions of “sale of illegal drugs” you are ineligible indefinitely. For possession, there’s a 3-strikes policy.

Also note, if you are convicted of a drug-related offense after you submit the FAFSA you may be responsible for returning any financial aid you received during that period deemed ineligible.

Do you have any other conviction?

If you have a conviction of forcible or non-forcible sexual offense, no, you cannot receive a federal pell grant indefinitely. Upon serving your sentence, you may apply for student loans. With any other misdemeanors or felonies, you are in fact eligible for the federal financial aid program in total. Of course, keep in mind, eligibility for federal grants and loans require that you qualify financially.

Final words

Yes, having a criminal conviction on your record will make getting financial help for your education more difficult. But that doesn’t mean you should give up. You may want to consider expungement. Expungement allows you to erase criminal records like it never even happened. Think of the great careers that people have built after finding themselves in prison: Civil Rights activist Malcolm X, country star Merle Haggard, and writer Piper Kerman all went on to significance only after their youthful mistakes caught up to them, and there are many more who made the most of their lives after a conviction. If you’ve been convicted of a crime, there are still resources available to fulfill your ambitions.

As the NFL sees it, Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy committed in an act of domestic violence in 2014. As the state of North Carolina sees it, Hardy did nothing at all.

The domestic violence charges filed last year against Hardy have been expunged.

Hardy had been charged with communicating threats and assault on a female following an altercation with Nicole Holder. A judge found Hardy guilty at a bench trial, which many people presumed was the same as an official finding of guilt.

It wasn’t. North Carolina law gave Hardy a trial before a judge before he received a trial before a jury. And before that Hardy reportedly reached a civil settlement with Holder. This must have prompted her to not show up for the jury trial.

She could have shown up at the jury trial, testified against Hardy, and then sued him separately. She didn’t, which ended the case against Hardy.

With all of the attention from the media, everyone knows Hardy did something. But the expungement of the charges will help him if/when he gets into trouble in the future, since what otherwise would have been a prior offense will no longer be.

If convicted with DUI, it is very important that you expunge your DUI records to become eligible for getting a job and doing some other legal things like getting loans, houses etc. Expungement is the process of removing your DUI records. A petition has to be sent to the court to get your records expunged. There are separate laws for every state when it comes to expungement, but here are some of the general things that you should know before going forward.

Where to petition for clearing your records?

The most superior courts are to be petitioned in the country or state where the DUI arrest had taken place.

When will your request be denied?

There are some grounds on which your petition will be ignored. These include:

  • If you have not completed the probation period.
  • The reason that you have given for expunging is not good enough.
  • You have committed and are convicted of severe felony.
  • Your arrest or conviction happened long time ago.

When will be the petition accepted?

  • Cases that involve only conviction and no proof are expunged easily, if the reason is good enough.
  • The person in question has spent no time in the state prison.
  • Proper rehabilitation and change in the way of living has been done.

How to go about with the process of filing for expungement?

The first question that may have popped at the forefront of your mind at this point of time may be do I need a lawyer? The answer to this will be that it is not a necessity to have a lawyer, but if you could afford hiring one, definitely go ahead as the whole process involves a lot of paperwork and having a qualified person by your side will get you proper advice on how to move forward. Next comes the duration for the whole process to get over. The whole process takes a total of 4 to 6 months under normal circumstances.

What is the filling fee and procedure?

The filling fee varies from state to state and also on the type of case that you are putting forward. The clerk will give you the expungement petition and the proof of service form. The process will then begin and all involved departments will then be contacted for information.

The whole process may end positively or negatively. If you win your case then you will get a 60 day period to check if your record is removed. After 60 days the record will be sealed shut. In case of loss you can go about the whole process again.

If you are convicted of felony, it is very important that you apply for expungement if you intent to look for a job, take a loan or buy a house in the future. In most of these activities, a background check is done and any past criminal records may have a negative impact on the overall process.

Expungement is also referred to as motion to dismiss in many states as it gives the outcome of termination of any past criminal conviction record. In true senses, expungement is not sealing or removal of records, essentially it is renewal of the records. In case of felony, an expungement will modify the records to show that the conviction has been done away with.

This is advantageous, as your records will now show that your conviction has been dealt with. You can also now answer a “no” when asked for any previous criminal conviction during a job interview.

The legislation also states that all penalties and disabilities that resulted from the conviction will be removed.

How to ensure better chances for success?

Although it is not necessary to hire a lawyer to deal with an expungement case, it is always advised to hire a seasoned attorney if you can afford it. Many times the case has to be taken to the courtroom for oral argument where the case has to be presented properly. If you don’t wish to speak before the courtroom and present your case, then you definitely need to hire a skillful lawyer.

Even though, a felony can be expunged, it is always advisable that you should try to lower to a misdemeanor before pleading. Please do note that in most states, felony and misdemeanor are treated separately.

When can you be granted expungement?

  • Cases that involve only conviction and no proof are expunged easily, if the reason is good enough.
  • The person in question has spent no time in the state prison.
  • Proper rehabilitation and change in the way of living has been done.
  • You are not on probation or are accused for any other crime.

Can a record be sealed completely?

In most states, sealing a record completely is not possible except for some special cases like Juvenile crime. However, you could definitely plead to the court and if your reason is good enough, you will surely get the relief that you have requested. Lawyers and attorneys can also be consulted for more advice.

Drug and marijuana charges are very common when it comes to expungement. Drug related arrests are often very high in the category of criminal conduct.  As far as drug related convictions are concerned, there are three different types of convictions. If a person is caught possessing drugs, if the person is doing sale or distribution, and if the person is a youth offender.

Expungement is quite easy in these cases are they are non-violent in nature. Hiring an attorney to help you in this process is not a must but if you are confused or need help, it is recommended to hire one.

Possession of marijuana or other drugs

If you are found possessing less than 50 g of drugs and this is your first arrest, the court will often order a diversionary program such as a conditional discharge. This program when completed, along with the probation period will lead to automatic dismissal of the charge.

The record will however be there and in order to file for expungement, you need to wait for 6 months after the probation is over. If you are not ordered a diversionary program, then you will have to wait for 5 years before applying for expungement.

In case you are found possessing other drugs, the act is often considered as felony and you will be charged with a degree 3 or a degree 4 crime. In the case of first arrest, pretrial intervention is often ordered as a diversionary program.

Selling of drugs

There are different laws for different states. But in most of the states, you can apply for expungement if you were arrested against a distribution charge for marijuana that was 25 grams or less or hashish that was 5 grams or less.

Youth offenders

Youth offenders, that is people who are under the age of 21 can apply for expungement after completing 1 year of sentence. However, it is important that there should not be any other criminal case that is running against that person.

In most states, there is no law for selling and distribution of drugs except for when the distribution charges are for marijuana that was 25 grams or less or hashish that was 5 grams or less. In other cases, the person can’t apply for expungement after 1 year of sentence completion; he/she will have to wait for 5 to 10 years.

Expungement of criminal records can be an arduous task. The level of difficulty that you might face may vary from state to state. In many states, only pre-trial, post-trial diversion and dismissed or retired charges can be expunged from your criminal record.

It is very important that you have this concept clear in your minds that in most states, misdemeanor and felony are treated separately. It is therefore very important that you take the necessary steps and do the procedures accordingly.

In most states, the conviction is final but in some cases when you have entered into a pre-trial or a post trial diversion or your charges have been dismissed or retired, you might get your records expunged. It is therefore very important that you consider and follow all your dimension agreements without missing out on anything, as even a single fault can completely destroy your chances of getting expunged, ever.

It is therefore recommended that if you can afford hiring an attorney then you should go ahead and do so. This is not necessary, but having a person who is trained to do these kinds of legal affair always helps you along the way.

Most often than not, there is a charge levied on the person in question if the person fulfills the diversion agreement and is expunged. However, in some states there is a clause for free expungement if the charges are dismissed against the person.

Expunging your records may seem redundant at times, but for many activities like getting a new job, getting a loan or buying a house, background checks are performed in most of the cases and any criminal record popping up against you will definitely be a negative and a black mark. It is also very important that there should be no other case that is running against the said person.

To get the best possible analysis, an attorney is the best person who you can consult. With just your name and date of birth, the attorney can fish out all your records and check out for any pending cases and all the pre-trial and post-trial diversion agreements and their status. The attorney can then advice you on the best possible path that you should take to have a higher rate of success.

Any expungement process can go either ways. It can be a success or failure. In case of a failure you can go through the process again with better reasoning and processing.

Before a bank issues a credit card, it wants to check the credit record of the borrower to ensure that he is creditworthy. The greater the reliability depicted by your credit history and your credit scores, the lower will be the rate of interest you will pay. And it works both ways.

If your credit ratings are not so great or if there is an incident that may cause the bank to doubt your reliability, you may be given the credit card, but your interest rates will be much higher compared to an individual with average rating. The factors that may have a significant impact on your creditworthiness could be your criminal record, besides the economic and demographic factors that the bank will consider.

With a criminal record, it is not impossible to get a credit card, just harder and more expensive. Most lenders, whether they are banks or financial institutions, want to minimize their risk while lending.

Though details of criminal records do not directly find place on any credit report, they can indirectly affect you as exhaustive checks are made on your personal profile. If the criminal record is in the recent past, then the lending institutions see you as a big credit risk. Getting a low interest loan in such a scenario is a truly difficult proposition.

Whether your criminal record is for a minor offense, misdemeanor, conviction or even for an offense where your guilt was not established, be prepared to be answerable for it while the bank is investigating your credit score. Though you are not legally obliged to divulge any of your criminal history to a lending institution, exhaustive checks by these companies will surely bring the information to the fore.

Since you have to submit a copy of your current residential address, the information about the number of years you have resided there, your driving license, utility bills, bank statements, etc, the investigators can read between the lines and deny the credit card or ask for very high interest rates for issuing one.

One of the plausible ways of avoiding this inconvenience is to expunge the criminal record. An expungement will cause your record to disappear from all registries so that it is not available for anyone’s perusal. Expungement of criminal record is also a simpler option to avoid paying exorbitant interest rates for years on credit card loans.

Actor Shia LaBeouf was arrested for public intoxication in Austin, Texas, on Friday, police said.

The “Transformers” star was booked on Sixth Street, a famous entertainment district in downtown Austin, according to a statement from the police.

“Due to pending adjudication, no further details will be released at this time,” the police statement said.

It is likely LaBeouf will be seeking out expungement, he has developed quite the criminal history.

The 29-year-old actor is no stranger to run-ins like this with the law. He has been arrested in the past for criminal trespassing, assault and even disrupting a Broadway show. He has even been accused of plagiarism.

Ben Blake, a bouncer at a downtown bar who witnessed the arrest, told NBC station KXAN: “Obviously he gets arrested a lot, he came down here, he acted up and APD doesn’t put up with that. So he got what he got, you know?”
