Free Pardon Applications

On February 5th, 2013, sponsor Chris England, Democratic Representative of Tuscaloosa, proposed House Bill 56. The Bill would allow a person to expunge his or her arrest record if the person was not convicted of the crime he or she was arrested for. The Bill would also allow for expungement of certain misdemeanor convictions.

Some of the requirements for eligibility include that the individual has completed all terms of their sentence, three years have passed from the date of conviction, and the person has not been convicted of crimes of a violent or sexual nature.   Currently, Alabama has little room for people with criminal records to apply for expungement. Alabama allows a person convicted of a crime to ask for an expungement if and only if there is an error in the record itself.

The Bill will be reviewed in Legislature during the next session.
