Indiana's New Expungement Law

Effective July 1, 2013, IC 35-38-9 creates an opportunity for individuals throughout Indiana to clean up their records and gain access to greater career opportunities.  The legislation has created an abundance of buzz and even more confusion, highlighted by hundreds of people rushing to the courthouse on July 1 under the false impression that they only had a one-day window to take advantage of the law.  Despite the confusion, the legislation is a substantial expansion of the state's expungement law and a great opportunity for rehabilitated ex-offenders.  Given its complexity and the fact that failed petitioners will need to wait 3 years to petition again, though, the consensus seems to be that individuals should consult an attorney before pursuing expungement.
