Expungements And Pardons

If you've had a criminal charge dismissed or placed on an inactive court docket, or if you were given a probation before judgment (PBJ) disposition, or found not guilty by a court, you are entitled under Maryland law to have all evidence of that offense expunged from the public view records of the law enforcement agency, the court and any other agency that entered information into its records as a result of that offense. If you do not apply for expungement, these cases remain on record within the criminal justice system and are open to public view.

If you have been convicted of a criminal offense, our Governor has the authority to grant a full pardon of that conviction, or grant a partial or conditional pardon after considering a completed application. After a period of time, that pardon may also be eligible for expungement.
