Sealing After Drug Treatment

For those whose drug or alcohol addiction led to the commission of certain crimes, there is another option for sealing your criminal record that may also be considered.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, and whether you meet the criteria, you may also be eligible for conditional criminal record sealing of drug-related convictions. Since 2009, the New York State Criminal Procedure Law (CPL) has allowed for the conditional criminal record sealing of drug-related convictions under certain circumstances. While most people with criminal records don’t meet the necessary criteria, our experienced legal counsel in this area can help you navigate whether you may be eligible for this conditional record sealing after drug treatment – and whether it is the right option for you in sealing your criminal record.

Depending on your particular case, there are pros and cons associated with each type of criminal record sealing for drug related convictions – and only an experienced sealing attorney can provide you with the critical guidance you need in choosing which legal course of action to pursue. The first step is to determine whether you are eligible to have your criminal record conditionally sealed for a drug-related conviction.

The following is Section 160.58 Eligibility for conditional record sealing:

  • Did you complete a judicial diversion program?
  • Did you complete a Drug Court or District Attorney sponsored DTAP program?
  • Did you complete a “judicially sanctioned program of similar length, duration, and level of supervision”?

If you have completed a drug treatment program, we can help you weigh the two options you now have when it comes to sealing and expunging your criminal record – and decide the course of action that would be best for your specific case.
