If you have ever been arrested, even if the charges were dismissed or you completed a diversion program, the arrest remains public record and can affect many aspects of your life. As of 2014, Alabama passed a new expungement law allowing certain charges to be expunged from your record. If your charge involved a non-violent crime, chances are you qualify for an expungement. Examples of violent crimes that cannot be expunged include:
- Murder/Capital Murder/Manslaughter; .
