About Louisiana Expungement Law
In the state of Louisiana, the expungement process does not destroy an individual’s criminal record. Rather, the process removes the criminal record which includes arrests, convictions, dispositions, photographs, fingerprints and other information related to the crime or arrest, from public access. The number one reason people seek an expungement is for employment-related reasons. With Fort Polk and the Joint Readiness Training Center being located in Vernon Parish, individuals in the Leesville region are often concerned about the impact a criminal arrest or conviction may have upon their employment and business opportunities. Both of these institutions exist in secure environments and gaining access as a private contractor can be challenging when a past criminal history comes into play. While protecting a criminal record from view can be very difficult under these kinds of circumstances, LEAAC is well-positioned to advocate for individuals in the area who are in need of a criminal expungement.
No-Obligation Initial Consultation
When you are considering asking for an expungement you should have the advice and guidance of an experienced Louisiana expungement lawyer. A criminal record can negatively impact your life for a very long time, and in some situations forever. If you have questions about the expungement process in Louisiana or think you would like to ask for an expungement, an experienced LEAAC attorney will answer your questions and outline the legal options that may be available to you.
