- You were arrested but not charged with a crime
- The case against you has been dismissed
- You were found not guilty of the charges brought against you
- Your identity has been mistaken
- You were charged with a petty drug offense, and has been one year since the end of all criminal proceedings against you or your release from jail, probation, or parole concerning your criminal conviction, whichever is later
HOW CAN YOU SEAL YOUR RECORD?
You must petition the court to have your record expunged, once the petition has been filed, the Judge will look at all aspects of the case and make a decision.
ARE THERE INSTANCES WHERE YOUR RECORD CANNOT BE SEALED?
Under C.R.S 24-72-703, a person is not eligible to petition to seal their record if they:

- Still owes restitution, fines, or court costs;

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW
Under C.R.S 24-72-703, a record that is sealed can still be accessed by law enforcement agencies, courts, the bar committee of the Colorado state board of law examiners, or prosecuting attorneys for lawful purposes. Additionally, if you are convicted of a new criminal offense after you have had your record sealed, the Court may Order that your record may no longer be sealed.
Once your record has been sealed, unless they are agencies stated above, your record cannot be accessed by employers, officials, landlords, and/or local government agencies.
A person may only file a petition with the court to seal records of each case once every twelve-month period, unless the court allows otherwise.
