Expunging or sealing an arrest or criminal record in DC is allowed in certain circumstances. Expungements are allowed under D.C. Code § 16-801 et seq. (Division II, Title 16, Chapter 8 of the DC Code). There are four categories under DC law that entitles persons to have their record expunged or sealed.
An attorney should be consulted for the application of the full law to your individual case.
