A sampling of the tips follow below.
A person may file a petition to seal a criminal record if the person has previously pled guilty to, or was found guilty of, a misdemeanor offense and in the intervening years the person has not been charged with a new crime for at least three years from the date of release from incarceration, parole, or probation.
A person may not file a petition to seal a criminal record if the offense was a felony offense involving violence or intimidation.
The petition must be properly filed and served, and it must include certain specified information.
When asked about the reasons behind the tip sheet, Lindsey Duane Haugen, Attorney At Law of Haugen Moeckel & Bossart stated,
“North Dakota has finally passed a law for people to seal prior misdemeanor and felony convictions in certain circumstances. This is a big step forward for people to move beyond their criminal past and get on with their lives; though it is not a guarantee that all of their past criminal offenses will be washed away.”
