DWI Lawyers Serving All Areas of Louisiana


The process required to remove a summons, arrest, and/or conviction in Louisiana is called an expungement. The motion for an expungement must be filed with the court. The judge must sign an order telling the various agencies to remove the record. Therefore, an expungement is not automatic. Many misdemeanor and felony charges can be expunged if the case resulted in a dismissal. There are many ways this can happen. Most commonly is when the defendant completed a pretrial program or was sentenced under Article 893/894 and the conviction was set aside.
