Under Colorado law, most adult criminal records are accessible to the public for examination at anytime. In addition the Internet has enabled quick and easy access to a person’s criminal history record. Evidence of a criminal record sometimes affects one’s ability to gain employment, work in certain fields, and generally live life without the stress of a prior conviction or charge.
Not all criminal records are eligible to be sealed. For example, cases involving a conviction on a DUI or DWAI and certain traffic offenses may not be sealed. However, many criminal records, which remain open to public view, are eligible and may be sealed under Colorado law. Sealing a criminal record in Colorado is a complex, time-consuming process that requires the expertise and experience of a detail-oriented criminal defense attorney.
