Can I Get an Expungement if I'm Arrested and Not Charged?

An uncharged arrestee is entitled to expungement of the police records of the unfortunate event as a matter of right. Experienced Baltimore criminal defense lawyers in Balitmore know this right extends to photographs and fingerprints as well.Although police, and court, records may be expunged, some individuals still find the incident may come up in some background checks.

This is supposed to be a self-executing process, although that is not always case, and in many instances the arrestee must pursue the matter.
