I was charged with 2 felony convictions 3 years ago, I paid for my charges and went on probation (both supervised and unsupervised). Since now it has all ended, I want to expunge the records so I can get a job. How can I remove the records? Can I get my gun rights back? Can I expunge it even if I don't live in Arkansas anymore?
Whether your record can be expunged depends upon what you were convicted for.Â You can visit my website and go through the flowchart to get an idea as to whether you are eligible to have your record expunged. (http://rosalynwatts.com).
If you get your record expunged you will then need to apply for a partial pardon through the governor's office to have your firearm rights restored.
You do not have to live in Arkansas to apply to have your record expunged; however, if the prosecutor objects to your petition to seal you will have to attend a hearing to determine if your record will be expunged.

I have a felony from 2005 that has been expunged for several years. I currently have a pardon application pending. I have read everything that I can find regarding Arkansas Act 1491 which changed A.C.A 5-73-103 and am under the influence that currently an expungement will give you the right to bear arms back. My only question is if Act 1491 is retroactive. Does anyone know of an opinion on this matter? Thanks for the help
