Ohio’s Expungement Law was recently changed on September 28, 2012, with the passage of Senate Bill 337. Prior to the enactment of Senate Bill 337, only one criminal conviction could be expunged from an individual’s record. Therefore, if the individual had more than one criminal conviction he or she was not eligible for expungement. Under this new legislation, however, an individual can now expunge two criminal convictions as long as they are both misdemeanor offenses or one felony offense and one misdemeanor offense. An individual cannot expunge more than one felony conviction. Offenses such as assault and domestic violence are not expungeable, as well as sex offenses, OVI offenses and felonies of the first or second degree.
